The Tea Party
Wednesday October 16th, 2019 with Brianna and Nico
Interview w Barbara Nzigiye & Lyra Evans from #WeStillDemand

hey hey hey, we're really loving these back to back moments we've been having lately, hope ya'll are not tired of us! hehe :): On tonight's show we are joined by Barbara and Lyra for a conversation about queer political involvement and activism. Barbara and Lyra came together, along with a group of Ottawa based queer peeps, earlier this year to discuss how 2SLGBTQ+ issues are routinely overlooked by politicians in the post-marriage equality era. Additionally, we will be having a conversation about the ways through which we can keep our queer communities politically engaged and active by discussing much of the work that remains to be done since the culmination of the marriage equality movement.
