Creator and Host of She Explores
Chevon Powell founded Refuge Outdoor Festival in 2018 to provide joy, community, connection, and refuge in the outdoors for Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and allies. This year's virtual festival will look a little different, but the same level of intention, care, and healing is imbued in each and every detail of the 3-day event.In this episode, we'll hear about the importance of community in Chevon's life and how she's cultivating it from a distance, her philosophy for event planning, and how she strives to create a safer space for festival-goers.Featured in this episode: Chevon Powell, founder of Refuge Outdoor FestivalHosted & Produced by Gale StraubA production of Ravel MediaSponsored by Raycon & Peak ScentsJoin the She Explores Podcast community on FacebookVisit She-Explores.com & Follow Us on InstagramResourcesRefuge Outdoor Festival: Website | Instagram | FacebookSundae Sermon: A Celebration of Black FolksGirl TrekSubmit Your Appalachian Trail StoryRavel MediaSponsors and Discount CodesPeak Scents: Get 20% your order when you use the code EXPLORE20 at checkout at PeakScents.com.Raycon: Get 15% off your order at BuyRaycon.com/explore.Episodes air weekly on Wednesdays-- subscribe wherever you listen so you never miss an episode.Ad Music is by Josh Woodward, Swelling, & Lee Rosevere.Other music is by Eric Kinny via Music Bed.
Pattie Gonia can come across as larger than life in her namesake social media platform. In person, strutting through the halls of an industry that is often stuck in its ways, Pattie is indeed real, showing up in the flesh as if to say, change is here, it’s been here. Don’t look away. Pattie is a drag queen who embraces change and working together to further community in the outdoors.In this episode, we meet the Pattie Gonia team, talk about growth, creativity, and allyship, contemplate femininity, and dream a bit about what’s possible in the outdoors. As you listen, we hope you’ll reflect on teams in your own lives and the ways in which reaching out and working together have helped you fulfill a collective vision. Sometimes it feels like you have to do things all on your own, but often the most rewarding projects take shape when shared.Featured in this episode: Wyn Wiley, Dayna Turnblom, Jenny Dugan, and Katie NashHosted & Produced by Gale StraubA production of Ravel MediaSponsored by Hoka One One, Peak Scents, & BetterhelpJoin the She Explores Podcast community on FacebookVisit She-Explores.com & Follow Us on InstagramResourcesPattie Gonia: InstagramLearn About the History of DragBallroom 101Watch How Do I Look (on Amazon)Watch Paris is Burning (on Netflix)Some Videos featuring Pattie GoniaDear Mother NatureDear HumanityClimb Every Mountain (features Julie Andrews look)Pattie's first Outdoor RetailerNonprofits Supported by Pattie Gonia in December 2019 fundraiserSustainable Coastlines HawaiiCenter for Marine Debris ResearchCamp Brave TrailsThe Children's Home ProjectAli Forney CenterBlack-led Nonprofits Supported by Pattie Gonia in June 2020 fundraiserGirl TrekSoul Trak OutdoorsCamp Founder GirlsGreening Youth FoundationOutdoor AfroBlack Outside, Inc.Learn about the different Enneagram typesRavel MediaSponsors and Discount CodesHoka One One: Watch Pattie's story, "Time to Take Action" and the rest of the Time to Fly series here.Peak Scents: Get 20% your order when you use the code EXPLORE20 at checkout at PeakScents.com.Betterhelp: Get 10% off your first month by heading to Betterhelp.com/exploreEpisodes air weekly on Wednesdays-- subscribe wherever you listen so you never miss an episode.Ad Music is by Josh Woodward, Swelling, & Lee Rosevere.Other music is via Music Bed.
