Linda Devo: Creating Myself
55 min

From her beginnings in Ghana to coming of age in south London, Linda Devo’s life has been one of encountering, exploring and constantly creating who she is. Alongside being a mother, artist and an out and proud dyke (her word), she’s also the founder of Kiki, a club night and conversation for QTIPOC in Bristol. We explore the positive results of owning your intentions and desires, expressing her identity through her art practice and the assertiveness that comes in middle-life. We also discuss her affinity with Nichiren Buddhism, her decision to take herself out of London, and what she thinks we need to do as a community to move forward together towards a future we deserve.

Community w/ Kristen Kaza - Ep. 159
We all want it, we all need it, but sometimes, we're not quite sure how to find it. That's why people like Kristen Kaza dedicate their lives to building community through events and creating "brave spaces" for LGBTQIA folks. Kristen is the party guru, event planner, and activist behind Reunion Chicago, Chicago’s beloved queer dance party Slo 'Mo, and more. She has worked on holding space and building events and gatherings where the LGBTQIA community can connect with, enjoy, and sometimes, challenge each other. We talk about how our communities are changing, and how COVID has shifted the way we connect. Plus, Melody implores our listeners to shed light on the Beaver festival, while Carolyn attempts to save her queer cred by binging gay movies. Finally, we answer a question from a baby gay with an adorable crush. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.
