Voices Unheard Vol 5 – James Sieben: Transgender Athlete and Advocate


Tuesday, Aug 11, 2020, Voices Unheard, a project sponsored by Kelowna Pride and hosted by Jessica Samuels, welcomes James Sieben

James Sieben (he/him/his) is a trans gay man. On this episode of Voices Unheard, James will talk with Jessica about how he has experienced misogyny first-hand before coming out, and how he actually now benefits from misogyny because he “passes for male”.

He’ll also discuss how he feels the recent rhetoric about trans people expressed by J.K. Rowling is harmful; the issue of anti-transness in sports; and why all cis LGBT2Q+ people should care about and fight for trans rights.

Voices Unheard is a weekly series designed to elevate voices and bring greater awareness to underrepresented members of society, including people of various racial backgrounds, sexuality, gender identity/expression, age, and ability.

Voices Unheard Vol 4 – Toni Boot: Woman of Colour in Government


Tuesday, Aug 4, 2020, Voices Unheard, a project sponsored by Kelowna Pride and hosted by Jessica Samuels, welcomes Toni Boot.

Toni Boot (she/her/hers), Mayor of Summerland, BC since being elected in 2018, joins Jessica Samuels for Episode 4. Originally from Summerland, Mayor Boot has quite the professional resume. She taught at Okanagan College for several years, co-owned Kettle Valley Dried Fruit Company, founded and owned Grasslands Nursery, holds a B.A. in Professional Communication, and entered local government in 2014 when she was elected to Summerland Council.

During this 4-year period, she also sat as a director on the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) board. The focus of this conversation will centre on being a woman of colour in government during such a politically-divisive and racially-charged time in modern history.
