In this podcast episode, Shannon O’Rourke (she/her) speaks to Helen Bowie (they/she) about what drew them to work in the LGBT+ sector, and particularly the LGBT+ Consortium, national (UK) specialist infrastructure group that supports LGBT+ groups and organizations (see: Consortium).
Shannon and Helen discuss the experience of being a bisexual person working in LGBT+ activism and research, as well as the lack of bisexual visibility and its impacts. They also question what it means to be simultaneously privileged and marginalized.
Helen shares thoughts on managing burnout, the challenge of maintaining boundaries when you feel personally connected to the work that you do, and the importance of solidarity and support in the LGBT+ sector.
