    A Conversation: Black Fetish Energy: Stigma, Sex, and the Black Queer Man

    A Conversation: Black Fetish Energy: Stigma, Sex, and the Black Queer Man

    It's been such a long time since I cracked this mic open. I plan on doing another podcast real soon to catch up and chat about what's been going on in this crazy world.

    In the meantime, I wanted to share a conversation I recently filmed with Ryan and William of Equitas Health, entitled “Black Fetish Energy: Stigma, Sex, and the Black Queer Man.” 

    It's a really compelling look into what it is like to be a minority using dating apps and if you recall from our previous episodes, I never had a shortage of dating tales to share.

    So even if you aren't a member of the LGBT community, and hell, even if you are pasty, I think listening to other people's life experiences facilitates a little something called empathy and lord knows we need more of that!

How All Advice Should Be

These guys are the perfect mix of comedy and honesty. There’s real morality here, but not in a judgy boring in your face kinda way. I can’t wait for the next episode every week!

I like to put this on when I want to decompress after work. Kodi is a one man pop culture encyclopedia!
