34. I Want That Freedom. [Andrés N. Ordorica.]

Andrés N. Ordorica is a Queer Latinx writer and educator based in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a writer, he aspires to create liminal worlds filled with characters who are from neither here nor there (ni de aquí, ni de allá). His work has been published by Confluence Medway, The Acentos Review, 404 ink, The Colour of Madness, The Skinny, and Bella Caledonia.  His writing often addresses mental health, loss, sexuality and living in a liminal state.

Andrés and Michael chat about otherness, denial, long distance relationships, finding liberation in a double-wide trailer outside of Ithaca, and what happens when your mom discovers gay porn on the family computer.
