Session 262: Exploring Asexuality & Aromanticism

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 versions of ourselves.

In honor and celebration of Pride Month, today we’re focusing on the experiences of those in the LGBTQIA community that identify as asexual or aromantic. This week I’m joined by Yasmin Benoit, the award-winning aromantic-asexual activist and founder of the #ThisIsWhatAsexualLooksLike movement. Our conversation explores what asexuality is and how it differs from aromanticism, some common misconceptions about the asexuality community, and the intersection of being both a Black woman and an ace-aro woman.
