Mulan Pt. 1

May 20, 06:00 AM
Who was Mulan and what does she symbolize beyond just a bad*ss warrior making her name in the emperor's army of Ancient China? We will spend two episodes on Mulan with the wonderful Giovonni Santiago--Gio for short--who, like Mulan is a true warrior, and our first male guest! 

So listen along and let us know what you think. Share your thoughts with us on instagram @femlorepodcast and as always, share this episode with your friends so we can keep creating! Your support, shares, and reviews are all greatly appreciated! 

Gio Santiago is a transgender military veteran, activist and non-profit founder, and so much more. His connection with Mulan is one we are happy to be able to share with you during this two part special episode. To learn more about Gio, check out his instagram @cockygio. 

This week's non-profit pairing is Gio's non-profit: META Center Inc. Join us in making a donation by visiting https://metacenterinc.org, together we achieve more.
