Building Queertopia: Riyadh Khalaf

Listen on

Episode notes

In the very first episode of Building Queertopia, Shane and Chelcee welcome broadcaster and author Riyadh Khalaf to their new queer utopia. The Dublin-born Youtuber is known for shedding light on LGBTQIA+ issues and he uses his own coming out story to help other queer people and their families. Drawing on his experiences growing up, Riyadh has a bold idea for what gender expectations would look like in Queertopia. He wants to make sure all LGBTQIA+ people feel free to live authentically from a young age. Shane and Chelcee want to know what piece of art Riyadh would bring, who he would to pay tribute to in statue and what building he would want for Queertopians to visit. And is there anything we could be doing right now to make real life better for the queer community? Their hope is that in the process of building this fictional paradise, they might just hit on ways to make reality that little bit better for…everyone. Want to have a say?
