In this episode I have the pleasure of talking to the incredible community builder and organiser, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah also fondly known as Lady Phyll, who is the nucleus of the award-winning celebration and protest that is UK Black Pride.
Lady Phyll is also the executive director of Kaleidoscope Trust, an organisation working towards the liberation of LGBTQ people around the world, an Albert Kennedy Trust patron and a public speaker focusing on race, gender, sexuality and class.
My goodness do we take a deep dive in this episode. We have a beautiful conversation about some of the things that make us human. Phyll also shares what lead her to found UK Black Pride, racism and how it intersects with other marginalised communities, Christianity and its link to white supremacy, homophobia and colonial systems. We also talk about managing expectations and overwhelm in social justice work and the beauty of joy. We also talk about the forthcoming UK Black Pride Love and Rage taking place online on the 2-4 July 2021 - as a space to re-imagine difference.
