St. Louis Queer+ Support Helpline (SQSH) with Luka and Esther

July 3rd, 2020

Today's conversation is with Luka and Esther of SQSH, an organization that provides free, confidential, and identity-affirming emotional support and resource referrals, by and for the St. Louis LGBTQIA+ community.

Luka (they/them), a queer non-binary Singaporean immigrant, founded the St. Louis Queer+ Support Helpline using a $5,000 grant and their prior experience working on a sexual assault helpline and volunteering at The Trevor Project. Born and raised in Singapore, a highly homophobic and transphobic country, Luka hopes to be able to immigrate to the United States.

Aligning Social Justice and Faith with Daphne Walker-Thoth

June 27th, 2020

My interview today with Daphne Walker-Thoth is another in a series of conversations I've recorded with people of color about their experiences. You'll notice that during this conversation I sometimes have difficulty even knowing how to ask some questions. I've chosen to leave the interview unedited so that my listeners can hear what it sounds like to have raw - and sometimes messy - conversations.

Daphne is a retired substance abuse counselor emeritus. Before recently retiring, she devoted more than 20 years to helping awaken faith organizations to the anguish and despair of social injustice. Twelve years ago, she spoke at the White House as a panelist on the role of faith organizations in addressing social service issues.
