THE EMPOWERED SISTERHOOD CREATING A COMMUNITY FOR THEIR LISTENERS
These frank discussions between friends about race, gender and sexuality struck a chord with other black, queer women and an empowered sisterhood was formed.
For Michelle, Babirye and DJ, it was all about building a space for people to explore their identities, "It's all about creating networks that allow you to be who you are." A community was born.
But in 2017 that community was blown apart. Their host broadcaster was accused of harassment and appropriation, forcing them to leave the station.
"Resilience is feeling the fear and doing it anyway," says Babirye, and the new station has spurred them on to speak up even louder — creating safe sex workshops, self-empowerment classes and even a documentary.
Sistren are in no way near finished.
