Rowan is a former Christian with a tender heart in opposition to injustice. She has a hot and fiery, triggered disposition with a will to fight back and she does. When coming out, she faced similar commotion that many before her have gone through. But when her journey led her to find herself to be genderqueer, a non-binary human, her understanding of love grew even more.

In this episode, we hint at her story but find ourselves neck deep into injustices and waist deep into the all too easy to fall for racial profiling of the service industry.

 Rowen and Raven!
gen·der·queer or non-binary
/ˈjendərˌkwir/
