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. Three years later, I decided to level up so on Good Friday of 2020, I Nike'd it and started the An Intimate Conversation with Women of Color (ICW) podcast to provide WOC a platform to use their voices. Since then, ICW has evolved from a platform to a community and, movement for WOC. On April 10, 2021, I celebrated my 1-year Podiversary. The An Intimate Conversation with Women of Color Show (ICW) is a podcast and YouTube channel. From Panel to Podcast to show..., this is MY journey!
