Audio Interference 86: Queer Soccer, “Being Together Everywhere”

Reb Ngu, one of our volunteers, interviews their teammate, Lua Ferreira, about their queer/trans pick-up soccer group, which Lua started in the summer of 2020. They talk about losing soccer as kids and recovering it as adults, the transforming effects of play, maintaining the group as a free and open space, and learning how to build community — or “being together everywhere” — through soccer.
