Knowing intimately that the borderlands are a place of learning and growth, Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza draws on their identity and heritage as a Trans queer Latinx in everything that they do. From doubt to divine and everywhere in between, their call as an activist-theologian demands the vision to disrupt hegemony and colonialist structures of multi-layered oppressions. As an anti-oppression, anti-racist, non-binary Trans*gressive Latinx, Robyn takes seriously their call as an activist theologian and ethicist to bridge together theories and practices that result in communities responding to pressing social concerns.
In this episode, I sit down with Dr. Robyn to talk about liberation, how it is different than equality, what collective flourishing might look like, radical difference, bridge building, and their new project: a book called Activist Theology.
This project is one that is so deeply needed, Dr. Robyn is partnering with artist Ree_Belle to create a theological work which queers liberation theology into Activist Theology. They have Kickstarter going right now: go donate! You can find out more about Dr. Robyn and their work on their website, irobyn.com — or follow them on Twitter and Instagram: @irobyn.
