Today’s guest needs little to no introduction for followers of skater social media. Neon is the creator of the @BIPOCWhoSkate instagram, which has become a clubhouse of sorts--equal parts home, hang, and hub--of BIPOC skater-centric topics, issues, and images. Through BIPOCWhoSkate, Neon hosted or sponsored Spanish-language skater terms classes, Q&As, events, book and film discussions, fundraisers, takeovers, and more. IRL the LA native co-founded and built a skating collective in Madison, Wi, where she landed after attending college elsewhere in the state. She’s also an alum of Madison Roller Derby and Team IRN, and is avid park skater.
