This week I had the chance to sit down with Adriana Di Bartolo, Director of the Queer Resource Center at the Claremont Colleges. I had been talking to Adriana about doing this for a bit, and it was awesome to get time to really connect with her. Adriana and I had a great chat about her growing up in The Valley, finding a career in hotel and restaurant management, coming out, finding higher education, dissertation writing, spirituality, activism, allyship, feminism, and understanding femme identity. We also talked about community building, having a great partner, creating boundaries, yoga, Real Housewives, and trashy TV in general, family, and spirituality.
Just as a quick note, there is an obvious change in audio quality about 15 minutes into the interview, because Skype crashed on us and we couldn’t get it to work again, so we had to switch to the phone for the rest of the interview.
