Join Carol for a no-holds-barred conversation with Heather Corinna about perimenopause and Heather's new book What Fresh Hell Is This: Perimenopause, Menopause, Other Indignities, and You.
Scarleteen founder and queer feminist activist Heather Corinna has helped a lot of teens into young adulthood. Now Heather turns their attention to another stage of life--perimenopause--and with incisive wit and the kind of bad attitude that only someone who's experienced peri can muster, they provides practical, clear info and support about "the change" and the many ways it can impact your life. (Hot flashes! Libido changes! Brains! Sleep quality!) Heather's new book is titled What Fresh Hell Is This: Perimenopause, Menopause, Other Indignities, and You--and that just about says it all. Heather talks to their old friend Carol Queen and they break it down--especially the sex, of course. Join us on Tuesday, September 21 at 5pm.
