Bailey Weickum and Jahna Martell are long time Austin eastsiders and partners of eight years. They belive deeply in the healing power of hemp—not just for our bodies, but for the planet. They started Redeemer three years ago to make top quality CBD products accessible to their community. In their free time they love to travel, spend time with their dogs and try adventurous cocktails.
In this Q&A with queer artist Robert Alvarez, we discuss the importance of identity and representation, the challenges of finding a sense of belonging in a rapidly changing city like Austin, and the power of art to inspire.
