The war in Ukraine has been going on for more than half a year, so people tend to forget about this issue and focus on their regular daily lives. Not Amy. They’ve been sharing resources, helping refugees and showed support to a point where it became a full time job. How did they take the shift from more general queer activism to a specific Ukranian Refugee flow? They’ll explain in this episode.
If there’s one thing I learned about Amy during our conversation is that their sense of responsibility is endless. Having been an activist from a young age, you’d think they’d work themself into a burn-out, or change interests over time but no. Amy made a drastic shift in her life in order to turn her activism in a full time-priority. It’s a struggle, but the goal is worth fighting for. Besides, Amy has learned to work this activist stress.
Of course we happen to talk about Eurovison too. It kinda becomes a yearly tradition to bring up the Song Contest in September. American, Asian and African listeners, share your thoughts on the matter!
