Tea Time with Alex

 

A Sassy Transgender Educational Series

Tea Time with Alex is Myriad’s response to HB2 and laws that challenge LGBT rights.

Our team believes this legislation comes from a lack of understanding and misinformation. So with the goal conversations and compassion, we created Tea Time with Alex: a web series that hopes to challenge ignorant assumptions and empower individuals to educate themselves in a safe, judgement free environment.

Alex, our fearless host (and Myriad Media’s Accountant), communicates in a sassy, hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking tone. Each episode features questions from our viewers that range from gender identity and sexual orientation to Trans hate crimes.

The best part of this project has been the heartfelt feedback from fans. Teens are using these videos to talk with their parents about gender. Fans who have felt isolated in their transition journey are finding a community and a way to laugh. We even inspired “Chai Time with Melanie” — a show from our friends at Pride School in Atlanta to talk about Melanie’s mixed heritage.

The ultimate goal of Tea Time is to educate allies and spread the message of understanding, inclusion and acceptance. Can we pour you a cup?
