Patrick Farabaugh was an up-and-coming magazine designer in New York City before he came to Madison and founded Our Lives, the city’s first magazine by and for the LGTBQ community. The bimonthly glossy celebrates local LGBTQ people and addresses important issues. Farabaugh is also a founder of the Madison Gay Hockey Association.
He believes that white fragility is a serious problem here. Until White Madison is ready to value equity as much as they do their comfort, we’re going to have a serious problem getting people to dive deeper into how they contribute to—and benefit from—institutional racism. Everyone wants to believe they are a good person, but until you are willing to stop and lean further into discomfort, you’re not going to begin to see where you might be part of the problem.
