A conversation with Rachel Lawson
NO GENDER LABELS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Recorded on 24 November 2020. Duration 45 mins approx.
Rachel’s pronouns are she/her, and she’s not fond of using gender labels for herself. In her words, she is a woman and identifies as a motorcyclist, a technologist, and many other things. Find out what that means to Rachel in this episode.
We also talk about being something versus identifying as something, coming out at work, riding a motorbike, travelling solo, and how safety is a relative thing.
“Do I feel completely happy with my body? No. But then again, you find me a woman who is.”

Rachel is a regular speaker at tech events, usually on the subject of community building, and has managed to use this and her passion for travelling by motorbike as an excuse to travel through some amazing countries in America, Africa, India, and Europe.
