The SafeWordSociety Podcast Season 3 - Ep 18
The SafeWordSociety Podcast is all about the nuances of living, loving & thriving as #QTPOC. The hosts, Kristen McCallum and Lamika Young, use interviews & discussions with thought leaders, influencers and community members to navigate the authenticity of identity. Their mission is to create a safe space for versatility and self-definition while uplifting the stories of those that are too often muted. We're so excited to start off Season 3 sharing this amazing discussion with Playwright, Roger Q. Mason and Community Partners Consultant, Ian Fields-Stewart of The White Dress Play! We learned so much about this affirming theatrical experience described as a gender queer coming of age story and cannot wait to see it for ourselves! On this episode, Roger takes us through his journey to The White Dress, the power of dramatic action and his commitment to the folk. Ian, a SWS fave, talks to us about their mission to bring theatre back to the community, the vitality of representation and the furthering of conversations on gender identity through the lens of the characters. We also hear about their exclusive collaboration with gender neutral evening wear brand, Kris Harring and why everyone should contribute to the #mywhitedress campaign!
