Tiny Homes: The Outlaw Project, Deb Montoya’s Story Chimes, Rhymes and Reptiles, White Boots by William Pitt Root; Working in Mental Health with Kate Kincaid

Tiny Homes: The Outlaw Project
The Outlaw Project was founded to mitigate the dire circumstances that frequently affect transgendered people of color. To ensure the rights and health of BIPOC Trans Women and sex workers, they are building transitional housing which helps provide emergency housing, economic justice, self-sufficiency; harm reduction, and mitigates the impact of oppression.

Deb Montoya’s Story Chimes
Deb Montoya is a Tucson-based artist. Deb’s great-aunts lived through the great depression and taught Deb how to repurpose every little bit. She learned how to make sculptures out of wire when she was little. Her uncle Jack who worked at the telephone company was providing used telephone wires for Deb and her siblings. The kids used to make toys out of wire. In the last ten years, Deb went back to her first love: Art. Currently, she goes to estate sales and buys metal pieces destined for the dump. Then she combines them with bells, glass, and crystals to create her whimsical windchimes. Deb says: "Each chime has a story and a good sound to it!"

Rhymes and Reptiles
Elaine A. Powers is a Tucson-based conservationist and author with a passion for spreading science education through storytelling. Her whimsical rhymes, and the animals she has rescued, have captivated audiences.

Working in Mental Health with Kate Kincaid
This is a short series where we spend time with mental health professionals to learn more about them. We asked; what inspired them to enter the profession, what’s perhaps unique about their approaches and the communities they serve, and what disparities they see in their field that they feel need to be addressed. In this segment, we meet Kate Kincaid who specializes in relationship therapy within systemically marginalized communities and has a growing practice in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy.
