Comments on the Ethioqueer podcast discussion with our allies

As a queer person, what are your thoughts on the podcast discussion with our allies? Please email us your thoughts at As a point of departure, please see the below comment from a lesbian in the community:

“The ideas that have been raised, their understanding, and their knowledge are very welcome. They are as well-informed, if not more so, than some members of the community. I enjoyed listening to them. I listened to them eagerly.”

“[As one of the participants said], the idea that there should not be an “us” and “them” framing is something that I am in agreement with. Saying “us” and “them” makes it seem like we are people who live in different worlds. In some ways, it implies that members of the LGBTQ community exist apart from the rest of society.”
