jarrett and Tre’vell are two Black queers with names spelled unusually. No company selling merchandise with common first names on, say, keychains, has made money off Jarretts or Tre’vells. Starbucks employees never spell their names correctly. So what’s it like going through life with an “unusual” name?

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
