The month of June marks a time of recog­ni­tion of two things that Ter­ra Informer Char­lotte Thomas­son holds close to her heart; being queer and cycling. June is Pride Month, com­mem­o­rat­ing the 1969 Stonewall Riots that played a large role in queer activism. And, in our home city of Edmon­ton, Alber­ta, June is also Bike Month, a time where some extra effort is put into encour­ag­ing peo­ple to get out and cycle. So, when Char­lotte had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to do an inter­view that brought these two things togeth­er, she jumped at the chance to bring us this week’s extra spe­cial episode.

This week, Char­lotte speaks with Macken­zy Albright, one of the founders of SNAQCS, a Slow Nice And Queer Cycloven­ture Squad based out of Vic­to­ria, British Colum­bia that cre­ates a wel­com­ing space for mem­bers of the LGBTQIA2S com­mu­ni­ty who want to have fun and ride bikes! Tune in to hear Char­lotte and Macken­zy share cycling sto­ries, talk about busi­ness­es and queer­bait­ing, the bina­ry of the out­doors com­mu­ni­ty, and how SNAQCS is push­ing the boundaries.
