We also talk about the history of Pride celebrations, timed with Global Pride that is taking place on June 27, 2020, how the origin of Pride has parallels with the racial upheavals happening at this current moment in time, and how Elspeth is rethinking her own approach to research so as to address the structural inequalities that exist within scholarship that further marginalizes people.
