Active[ism] by Chantal Herbert

Active[ism] is an audio feature that explores what pride means to six LGBTQIA+ persons of colour who are from or located in the North East of England. LGBTQIA+ people of colour are all too often left out of ‘queer’ community conversations and spaces, and racism exists within them. This audio piece amplifies the voices of those that may otherwise be unheard and highlights issues faced within queer spaces.

This feature is best listened to with headphones or speakers.
