Getting in Bed With Kristin: Religion & Queerness, Slowly Transitioning, and a New Kitten!

Welcome back to Getting in Bed With Kristin! Based on your feedback, we’re revamping this series in 2019. Kristin will now be on Autostraddle’s Facebook live biweekly — on Thursday’s at 3pm EST! And new videos will post on Friday morning here on Autostraddle dot com! Kristin Russo, every other week! We’ve also decided to focus on you, so Kristin will be centering community and advice, with only a very occasional guest. You can ask your questions in the Facebook livestream, on Twitter with the hashtag #GIBWK, or anonymously in this little box! One more change: GIBWK will now be available on YouTube, for easier viewing on your phone.

This week, Kristin is chatting about reconciling religion and queerness, slowly transitioning, and introducing you to a baby foster kitten!
