An Intimate Conversation with Women of Color

An Intimate Conversation with Women of Color

In 2017, I created a panel to give LGBTQ+ WOC and Allies space to use their voices. Thee years later, answering “what’s next”, I decided to level up. So on Good Friday in 2020, I Nike'd it and started the “An Intimate Conversation with Women of Color” podcast to provide WOC a platform to use their voices. “An Intimate Conversation” has evolved into a community and movement for WOC and is also available on YouTube. From Panel to Podcast, this is MY journey!
