Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, edna bonhomme interviewed Lee Richards and Camille Barton, two queer decolonial activists and researchers living in Berlin about their practice of somatic healing. We also discussed how they are coping with COVID-19, what is happening in their communities abroad, and how we can help marginalized communities navigate through this current crisis. We spoke about the intersections of wellness, care, and social justice.

Lee Richards, also known by their stage name Daddypuss Rex, is an intersectional gender terrorist with a big mouth and who isn’t afraid to use it. Based in Berlin, they are a multidisciplinary artist/poet/stand up comedian and co-producer of the Queer talk show ‘Just The T’ . They often use a mix of humor and poetry to navigate topics such as anti-Blackness, racism, transphobia and general colonial nonsense - the goal is to touch hearts, minds, and butts...with active consent!

Camille Barton is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, facilitator, coach and somatic movement practitioner, working on the intersections of wellness, arts, drug policy, and social change. They are the director of the Collective Liberation Project and co-produced RE:GENERATE, a Black centered UK arts festival focusing on the intersections of drug policy, racial justice, and liberation.
