I caught up with long-time monthly supporter Jax in the hallowed halls of the McGill School of Nursing where she currently studies. In the gentle afternoon light, we had the pleasure of catching up on three of my fave topics: cardigans, femme-dom, and youth empowerment! Below, Jax talks high school passions, the end of capitalism, veggie pulled pork, and CIARA!
