Tui talks about how Roller Derby has changed her life from growing up in Australia to touring the world as a coach and player: “I would not be such a queer, loud mouth feminist if I didn’t have Roller Derby, definitely not!”    It’s a candid conversation between two players and coaches who share a mutual respect and passion for the game.
