Happy Thursday, everybody! It’s that time again and today we bring you another one of our Tagg Nation Podcast ladies. She’s our resident historian and source for all things Gayborhood nationwide, the creator of our 2017 Pride playlist, and the human of the podcast cat. Meet Jade Salazar!

Name: Jade Salazar

Age: 32

Single, in a relationship, or it’s complicated?
Quite taken.

What do you do and why do you do it?
Podcast and radio and all, but mostly I just binge-watch Netflix and Hulu with my cat.

What was the most rewarding part of coming out?
Meeting a community of family and building my queer network, but also watching my loved ones grow and evolve in ways I never thought they would.

What is your favorite social media app?
Instagram, at the moment, because I love pictures and seeing my friends’ lives. But Twitter is becoming a close second. It’s a good way to just throw out random thoughts without starting an entire comment section of other people’s opinions.

Biggest pet peeve?
Incessant beeping noises. Fake British accents. When people take off their shoes and place them the wrong way. Also, never touch my ears, like ever.

Favorite emoji?
Casual banana 🍌

If you were a clothing store, what store would you be and why?
Rainbow. You definitely have to go to some rundown dead mall to find me and I’m full of gaudy jewelry and cheap clothing, but somehow that lime green tube top has outlasted all of your best clothing and has been a summer staple for 12 years now.

What do you like to do on the weekends?
Either all the brunches and all the queer parties or literally sit on my couch for 48 hours. Depends on the weekend.

What’s one issue you are passionate about?
LGBTQ or women’s rights. I love a good Facebook rant.

If you could pick anyone in the world to be president, who would it be and why?
Dolly Fucking Parton. Just read her Wikipedia or watch any interview ever. Actual queen of my heart.

What’s one thing you want to be remembered by?
Being a good person and helping people. Lame, I know. But I was at a friend’s mom’s funeral and almost every person in attendance stood up and told a story about how she helped them and listened to them and times she made them feel important and loved and lifted them up in a dark time. When I witnessed that, that’s all I wanted in life.
