Leigh and Ellie talk to MILCK (@milckmusic), the activist and performer behind the viral song "Quiet" about her journey coming out as a survivor, how we can support the survivors in our lives, intersectionality in activism and how her song came to be featured on Freeform's The Bold Type. MILCK was the organizer of the I Can't Keep Quiet a cappella flash mob at the Women's March in D.C. and continues to be an activist with her music and the I Can't Keep Quiet Fund. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.
