Interview: Race and Conscious Dating

I was a panellist on a thoughtful discussion about race and dating with journalist and documentary filmmaker Santilla Chingaipe and multi-talented author and editor Andy Quan.

I talked about the sociology of attraction and why we need to tackle racial bias at the individual and structural levels. Santilla discussed her SBS show “Date My Race” as well as her online dating experiences. Andy discussed co-founding the Sexual Racism Sux campaign for the gay community in Sydney.

The panel was facilitated by Kaila Perusco and hosted by Conscious Dating Co.
