On today's episode, we're joined by Dr Indigo Willing and Emily Kafoa to talk about how skateboarders are shifting the conversation on consent, anti-racism and inclusivity. Indigo and Emily take us through how women and gender diverse skaters have been working to transform the scene, covering topics including community accountability, creating safe spaces, and fostering representation and diversity in skateboarding.
Dr Indigo Willing is a Vietnamese sociologist and skateboarder and co-founder of both We Skate Queensland and Consent is Rad, based in Meanjin on Jagera and Turrbal land. Emily Kafoa is a Bundjalung skater, a Minjungbul girl from Tweed Heads, and is the founder of Girls Skate Gold Coast as well as a new ambassador for the First Nations skate team Songline Skateboarding.
