Barcelos Can’t Explain It All

I’m patting myself on the back for a moment: All The Referee of the Year Candidates Are Men and You Should Be Pissed About It broke Face Beat It‘s record for hits in one day, clocking in at just a hair under one thousand page views.

Okay, enough of that. As happy as I am to stir up the conversation about women in quidditch, that’s not enough. My feminism isn’t shit if it’s not intersectional. I’m a white, cisgender, straight woman who voted for Hillary, a stereotype of White Feminism if there ever was one.

But I want to be better than that. I want to keep shining a light on what it’s like to be a minority in this sport. I want to keep this conversation going.

I can’t write about what it’s like to be LGBTQA+ or a person of color in quidditch by myself, but I want to. My experience as a woman is far from the only perspective that needs to be shared.

So if you’d like to share your experience, I’d like to provide a platform for you. Feel free to message me, leave a comment here, or email me: elizabeth@barcelosknows.com
