I had the chance to chat with Gretchen Wylder, the creator, writer, and one of the core characters of the web series These Thems. Her series uses humor to examine and discuss topics of queerness, gender identity, coming out, sexual empowerment, and so much more. In her series, Wylder plays Gretchen, who after realizing she might be a lesbian, befriends a nonbinary dog walker named Vero. This friendship leads to a journey through the queer culture and world that Gretchen had never known. Thank you to Gretchen Wylder for discussing her series with me.

Coming out on October 1st, The Power Book is a beautifully illustrated work that examines questions like “What makes you the boss of me?”, “Why can some people vote for their leaders, while other people can’t?”, and “Why are there fewer female scientists, leaders, and artists than men in history books?” Geared toward young readers, primarily those 7 to 11, this work speaks frankly and candidly about these topics and many more to help children understand the idea of power and how it is used in society.
