The Tea Party will aim to provide a space in time for discussion that is inclusive and critical in regards to the issues that Women, BIPOC, Latinx, and queer and trans folks face on a local, national and international level. Discussions will aim to serve the interests of these communities and the conversations will be facilitated through a variety of segments. Depending on the topic for each show, Bri and Nico will discuss history, accomplishments of members of our communities (locally and abroad), personal experiences, popular culture, current events, and music.*

During the Tea Party:

  1. We hope to foster a space for debates and discussions because we believe that dialogue is crucial for the understanding of societal issues and the bettering of our communities.
  2. We strive for collective solidarity within our communities through the exchange of testimony and opinion.
  3. We aim to continue to deconstruct and interrupt mainstream narratives of marginalized communities in order to achieve a better understanding of the real issues that affect us and people like us.

Our show will aim to provide listeners with testimonies and stories that come from different perspectives and locations while simultaneously being accessible and intelligible to all those listening. Through the use of humour, debate, and community outreach we hope to showcase how difference can be a coallitional tool for community building and social justice.

We hope you join us for a late evening tea party!
