This week we’re speaking about LGBT experiences around the globe and how it compares to London. We talk to Michal Piatkowski about LGBT free zones and it’s ideological implications, Christina Ivey about structural homophobia and its effects on Jamaica’s local economy, and Andrés Gomez about class, catholicism, and club culture.
“So I kinda had built [London] up as this idyllic queer paradise in my head when really, it’s a lot more complicated than that…for instance, I did not think about racism” – Christina Ivey, from Jamaica.
Welcome to the first episode of Crossing the Globe with Ash Layo Masing from the Beaver Sound! We explore a crossborder issue each episode using the unique eyes of LSE international students. Through learning from each other we gain a better understanding of different ways to see the globe.
