This week we speak with the wonderful Shivani Dave (they/them). Shivani is a non-binary journalist, broadcaster, and physicist. Shivani began their media career at the BBC, and while working for Radio 4, began producing an independent passion project called The Log Books, sharing the untold stories of British queer history. They specialise in telling stories with the communities that are often unheard, most recently releasing Black and Gay, Back in the Day.
Alongside this work, Shivani is a presenter at Virgin Radio, a TikTokker, and a drag artist under the brilliant name Dishi Sumac. They are also in the Radio Academy's 30 under 30 2022, Attitude 101 Honours list, and have been recognised by the British LGBT+ Awards as one of their 'Top 10' broadcasters of 2022.
In this episode we discuss intersectionality through the lens of race and ethnicity, what we should be doing as a society to become more trans and non-binary inclusive, and the importance of queer joy!
