We start off today’s show by discussing the past week’s pride events, and how we have included the animal liberation message. Also, we chat about the problematic highly corporate presence in the pride parade, which has essentially changed it from a liberation march to a street party / marketing ploy.

pattrice has taught psychology and women’s studies at Minneapolis Community & Technical College as well as gender studies at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul. She has also authored scholarly articles rooted in her observations of and work with the animals at the sanctuary.
We share our interview with pattrice, where we discuss VINE Sanctuary (which she co-founded), queer liberation and its connections with animal liberation.
