Vlog Ep. 208: SOGIE Talk

In our first #BaduyPride episode in celebration of Pride Month, we decided to risk having an open and honest conversation about SOGIE. We don't claim to be experts on the subject, which is the case for many of us I'm sure. But what is more important is how we all have the capacity to remain open and have the ability to learn and work with others to better ourselves.

This snowballed into a much larger conversation that lasted for like two hours. But in the end, it was a good discussion and perhaps the first of many that will need to happen in order for all of us to get a better handle on things. More than our efforts to help people better understand SOGIE, it was also a good conversation about the complexity of explaining the subject, its importance to the greater LGBT rights movement in the country (and maybe the world), and other related subjects.

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
