Episode 39: "Pause...Now Let's Talk" - A Conversation About The LGBTQI Community w/ Dr. Lourdes Dolores Follins

October 10, 2018



The increased representation and visibility of Black LGBTQI individuals in the media has opened up dialogue about the issues they face within the black community and society as a whole. Today, BhD contributes to the conversation by interviewing Dr. Lourdes Dolores Follins, a black queer psychotherapist and behavioral scientist who has taught about, conducted research with, and written about same-gender-loving and LGBTQI people of color since 1999. We define “LGBTQI” for our listeners (23:30), discuss myths and misconceptions about the LGBTQ community (25:22), and the factors that contribute to those misconceptions (33:10). We also have a conversation about heretosexism, homonegativity, and cisgenderism (37:49), health outcomes within the LGBTQ community (43:38), and the role of intersectionality in those outcomes (49:04). We close by discussing how families can better support their LGBTQ loved ones and resiliency in the LGBTQI community (54:26).
