Kamryn Wolf was one of the union members and supporters who helped win a union contract at Babeland, a NYC sex toy store. In this interview, Kamryn discusses their suburban growing up and alienation at an elite prep school, their time at college, followed by moving to New York. They spent two years working for Third Root Health Center, a trans and queer inclusive holistic healing collective in Brooklyn, followed with their work at Babeland. In discussing their organizing at Babeland, they reflect on the role of queer and trans identity in workplace solidarity. Following Babeland, Kamryn entered a Masters of Divinity Program at Union Theological Seminary, where they are thinking through their long-standing commitment to spiritual health work with trans people.
