Ep. 4 // Queering Gender

The founders chat with licensed social worker and sex therapist, Sonalee Rashatwar (she/they), about a topic that can be at times equal parts frustrating, confusing and enlightening: gender. What does it mean to "queer gender"? How are gender roles affected by other parts of our presentation? There's a good amount of "woah!" moments.

Ep. 1 // Welcome to the Brown Taboo Project

CW: Sexual abuse, abortion

Brown people -- let's talk about sex and mental health, baby! After ~2 years of trying to figure out how to make discussions around sexual and mental health issues accessible to our South Asian community, we had an idea: PODCAST! South Asian Sexual Health Alliance (SASHA) co-founders Sree Sinha, Tania Chatterjee, Trinish Chatterjee and Sriya Sarkar chat about what taboo problems they're dealing with in their very brown lives.
