S3E9: On being out online with Kate O’Sullivan

S3E9: On being out online with Kate O’Sullivan

In this week’s episode, I chat with my friend Kate O’Sullivan about being out online and being an effective ally.

We talked about:

  • Being an effective and vocal ally online and how it feels when you lose followers because of it
  • Internalised homophobia and realising you’re gay as an adult
  • The problems with the words “tolerance” and “acceptance”
  • Creating safe spaces online
  • A breakdown of the acronym LGBTQA+ and the importance that labels can have for people
  • Imriel ‘Inclusivity Queen’ Morgan and why it’s not about having privilege, but what you do with it
  • Differentiating what is cultural appropriation from cultural appreciation
  • Centering marginalised people rather than centering yourself
  • The shaming of people’s sexuality and the fetishisation of a coming out story
