Gendercast Episode 15: What Does it Mean to be an Ally? Interview with Debbie Carlsen, Director of LGBTQ Allyship
"Allyship is about growth...and humanizing each other" [from Debbie's interview]
Join us for an important interview with Debbie Carlsen, founder and Director of LGBTQ Allyship; a Seattle-based non-profit organization focused on organizing around social and econnomic justice issues facing the LGBTQ community. Debbie discusses the mission of Allyship, which is that all oppressions are interconnected and there is a possibility of a world free of oppression and the liberation of all people. Debbie has been organizing in Seattle since 1995 and talks about allyship as "a lifelong learning cycle of learning about others' perspectives" and hopes to organize deeper in coalition with other communities. Sean also interviews Seattle's own Ruby Rouge the producer of Pink Taco which takes place every first Tuesday at the Wildrose.
