#10 Rolling with Pride: The Honey Island Rollers' Journey to Inclusivity

Welcome back to another episode of "More Than Friends," the podcast that delves into the vibrant lives within the LGBTQ+ community. We're strapping on our skates and rolling into the exciting world of roller derby with Malta's first and only team—the Honey Island Rollers. In this jam-packed episode, I sit down with four fierce members of the Honey Island Rollers—Morina, Calypso, Spyro, and Swiffer. Did you know that in roller derby, every player goes by a unique derby name? We'll spill the beans on that quirky tradition later in the show. But first, we rewind to the Honey Island Rollers' grassroots beginnings, exploring how they've shattered stereotypes and created a space of inclusivity that goes beyond the rink. Roller derby is more than just a game for these athletes; it's a platform for breaking barriers and fostering diversity. As we lace up our skates and glide through the conversation, we also get the inside scoop on the Honey Island Rollers' upcoming rookies intake for the 2024 season. Did they manage to convince me to join their ranks? Well, you'll have to stick around until the end to find out. So, whether you're a seasoned derby enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of roller skates, join us as we hit the rink with the Honey Island Rollers.
