What makes you come home and feel safe, lean into that, and stay away from things that tend to hurt you, or discourage you, or make you feel less than, or less deserving.” – Kenny Ethan Jones
We invited two best friends to sit in front of some cameras and have a chat. The result? A conversation full of laughter, joy, unreserved honesty and heartfelt reflection. From contemplating gender euphoria, to frank discussions about transphobia, and…gay dolphins. In this final episode of Anthems Talks, Kenny Ethan Jones and Charlie Craggs talk about what it means to live your best authentic life, and how the people around you play an important role in this.
Kenny and Charlie’s word of the day is REALNESS.
