Session 29: Respectability & Sexuality

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

This week’s episode features Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Courtney Watson. Courtney and I discussed how respectability politics impacts Black women’s and femmes’ sexuality, how you can reclaim your sexual freedom, and discussed ways you can find like- minded individuals to affirm your sexuality.
