Wearing a sari to skateboard, Aunty Skates challenges the toxic aunty narrative (Aunty Skates, Oorbee Roy)

Down to Brown by Lahari Rao

Episode notes

Oorbee Roy is better known on the internet as "Aunty Skates," with her badass videos of skating in a sari and helmet (safety first!) Oorbee and Lahari talk about how we might've come to the "Toxic Aunty Culture" we came to know in the US, and ways to shift that as we interrupt the cycle. We discuss British Colonialism, white supremacy, the patriarchy's way of turning women against each other, and being the "hero" of our own stories. Follow us on IG @downtobrown_
