Why is it so difficult to chat with family and friends about causes you care about?

Jamie Windust is a an author, content creator and Contributing Editor at GAY TIMES. They made headlines in 2018 for calling out the staff of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald for "Misogyny, homophobia, transphobia everywhere", and in 2019 for petitioning the UK Parliament for gender-neutral passport options. In 2020, they published their book, ‘In Their Shoes: Navigating Non-Binary Life’ and continues to write for publications such as Metro UK, The Independent and GAY TIMES to compassionately share LGBTQ+ stories with the world.

Fehinti Balogun is an actor, creator, and activist. He has worked in theatre, film and television, with recent performances including Dune, I May Destroy You, ITV's Viewpoint, Netflix's The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself and Juliet Naked. Alongside his acting career, he delivers talks on climate change aimed at more rounded inclusion in the climate conversation.

In the sixth episode of season 3, Confessions of a Climate Activist, Clover sits down with Jamie Windust and Fehinti Balogun to explore how to ruin Christmas! First up, Clover and Jamie discuss the expectations placed on individuals to be and oftentimes represent someone they aren’t. Then, Clover speaks with Fehinti about the difficulties of waking up to the climate crisis while navigating our day-to-day lives. To wrap up, both Jamie and Fehinti spill their juiciest climate confessions.

“Take your time finding out who you are first and not existing as someone who you think other people want you to be.” - Jamie Windust

"Climate change isn’t the problem. Climate change is a symptom of the problem. Climate change wouldn’t exist if it didn’t make someone money.” - Fehinti Balogun
