“There is something that I think gets in my way, or has gotten in my way in the past when thinking about the multi-hyphenate,” says é boylan. “And I think it’s the hyphen. It’s the idea why I like I’m a non binary human that doesn’t like to hyphenate the non and the binary because that’s another binary! It’s like the barrier in the middle. It feels sometimes like it’s divisive within myself.”
Topics of conversation:
individual approaches to the multi-hyphenate
the pros and cons of branding
capitalism in multi-hyphenating
bragging about callbacks on social media
misinformation on social media
