intersectionality and racial equity as fundamentally necessary frameworks for ID

I so appreciate Ann and Carly’s immediate emphasis on intersectionality and racial equity as fundamentally necessary frameworks for their work in the field of intimacy direction and coordination. A much needed perspective from two wise women.

Can’t wait for episode 2!
