In this episode we sit down to talk with Tenika Watson, author of the memoir My Life Is No Accident, and host of a podcast by the same name. Tenika has been part of the LGBTQ scene in Philadelphia since the 1970s, and was cast in infamy when she caught a ride with singer Teddy Pendergrass one fateful night in 1982. Outed, dead-named, shamed, and blamed for the accident, Tenika has only recently been able to reclaim the narrative of who she is and the true value of the life she’s lived.
