As a Black, queer and trans person, social justice is more than just theory for me: it plays into every aspect of my life and how I move through the world. Unfortunately, intersectional perspectives are often not at the center of the conversations, leaving stories like mine at the margins.

As the name of this podcast implies, my goal is to highlight the voices of folks whose identities are also devalued in various capacities, with the goal of listening, understanding, and networking around our shared experiences. Grab a cup of tea and let's learn from one another.

Who is Missing from Pride? (ft. Nivie Singh)
On this episode of From the Margins, I am joined by Nivie Singh, an organizer with We Are Missing. Their work points out the integral need for intersectionality within contemporary pride movements in Canada. We got the opportunity to chat about their work, share our organizing experiences, and dream of a better world. We talk about harm reduction, righteous anger, and so much more.  Have an idea for a future show? Any burning topics that you would love to hear me discuss with a guest?

1. Understanding Intersectionality (ft. Masuma Khan)
On the very first episode of "From the Margins",  I thought that we would start with a discussion on intersectionality. I had the chance to sit down with K'jipuktuk's own social justice activist and overall superstar Masuma Khan to talk about what intersectionality is, what it isn't, and how we can work together in solidarity and build healthier communities of care.
