MTL Skater Dykes!

Skater Dykes – MTL Skateboarding Group

Produced by: Ronit & Melanie

Turn up your volume ’cause this audio’s O-L-D! In this clip two women, part of an all-dyke Montreal skating crew, talk about what it means to be a female skater. What do you do when you love the hardcore scene and skateboarding, but are totally sick of standing on the sidelines and watching the boys skate? What do you do when a man walks by you skateboarding and tells you a real woman should be wearing red lipstick and standing by her boyfriend’s side? Start a skateboarding crew of your own!  As a result of Skater Dykes, these skateboarding ladies feel empowered even when faced with discrimination from passersby and male skaters. WARNING: featuring some delicious sonic gems from X-Ray Spex + spreading love for thrash, punk & hardcore.

Bhum Bhum Time Clip of the Week – Racial Profiling

This  piece of radio  inspired the Clip of the Week.  It was/is that good.  Clip of the Week is CKUT’s way of highlighting some of the sounds, ideas, personalities that define us.  You can find more of them on our website.  This clip, from Bhum Bhum Time is a discussion about racial profiling in Montreal.  Sadly the “hoodie march” spoken of was cancelled because of concerns about the safety of participants.
