Welcome! I created this channel to talk about pro-intersectional justice, always making sure that humans and other animals are a part of that conversation. I also like to find cool activists and interview them about their work/ views/projects. Follow me on Facebook and say hi! xxx

Interview With "Collectively Free" | Radical activism, queerness, dating, self-care (with footage!)

I’m so excited to welcome Lili and Raffi from Collectively Free on my channel! This interview might seem a bit long by Youtube standards, but I think it is worth every minute. Here are the time stamps of what we talk about if you want to jump around (though I don’t think it’s necessary ;)) I hope you enjoy it, and please remember to follow Collectively Free on: Youtube: Website: Facebook: Instagram: Interview questions: 0:00 “Please introduce yourselves and Collectively Free! How did you meet? Were you already politicized when you met or did you start that journey together? Were you both already vegan?” 5:50 “Were you always pro-intersectional vegans? I wasn’t… ” 10:50 “I want to ask you both about being lesbian women in the AR movement because I feel like there is very little representation of queer women (or any women really) in leadership positions. How do you confront and disrupt heteronormativity in the movement?” 13:17 “How are queer liberation and animal liberation connected?”(Watch footage of a Collectively Free disruption!) 20:30 Watch footage of a Collectively Free disruption against police brutality! 23:10 “In the actions you organize, you use your bodies to disrupt public space. Often in this movement, women are told that the best way they can use their bodies in the streets is to “get undressed for the animals” and make veganism look sexy. Collectively Free provides a good example of an alternative way to use our (female) bodies as a means of resistance. Could you tell me a little bit about the actions you stage, why they are effective, and how they might differ from more traditional AR street demonstrations like the ones organized by PETA? ” 28:10 Collectively Free does street theatre! Listen to Lili and Raffi discuss it, and watch footage! 30:53 More talk about PETA demonstrations 32:38 “What has the feedback been about Collectively Free in the vegan community? (both good and bad)” 36:16 “How do you combine art and activism?” Watch footage of Collectively Free ARTIVISM! 39:10 “How do you self care and how do you avoid burnout as an activist?” 41:30 “Where can people find you?” THANK YOU TO RAFFI AND LILI!!!
