Theory in the Flesh with Professor Rusi Jaspal
Play episode · 58 min

Much is researched, written and said about sexual racism in our communities. "No Blacks, no fats, no femmes, no Asians" are all terms any of us who’ve used dating apps have seen and those of us caught in the racist, fat- and femme-phobic crosshairs, we feel the pain acutely. My guest today, Professor Rusi Jaspal, is finding that what has become an ostensibly casual digital discrimination has real world implications on the lives of those that discrimination impacts.

Professor Rusi Jaspal began his research career trying to understand how British Pakistani Muslim men reconcile their religion and their sexuality, and has since gone on to lead the way in the UK on research specific to the lives of LGB BAME people. Professor Jaspal is truly unmatched, both in the scope of his research and the depth of his understanding of what it means to live - and oftentimes be invisible - as queer people of colour in Britain.

Among much else, his research finds that Black and Minority Ethnic men who have sex with men, who experience rejection from those they love, respect or admire, then enter into a gay scene that does not recognise or validate their lived experience, which makes them more prone to depression. That depression, in turn, makes those men more vulnerable to sexual risk-taking, like chemsex and condomless sex.

This conversation is big and rich and eye-opening. It adds some much needed context and texture to the conversations we have about the importance of coming out in our communities. Namely, that we have to create around queer people the environments, the societies and the cultures that accept them for who they are.

Phoebe, Mai Huynh, & Eric Nam Go On K-Pop Adventure
Hey y'all! Can you believe I'm doing back to back supersized episodes? Well, honestly, I had no choice because there is soooooooo much to discuss when it comes to K-pop that I already want to do another episode. But in the meantime, let's focus on today. After British Baekoff and I talk about his musical past in a scream metal band (lol, wut?), I'm talking to my first guest my friend/co-worker/life coach/part-time therapist/#1 BTS fan Mai Huynh. We not only discuss why K-pop has taken over the world but how it has transformed her life, but also K-pop music is encouraging its fans to be more socially and politically active. Next! I'm sitting down with bonafide star Eric Nam. He has been in the game a long time and is sharing his experiences as well how K-pop has changed since he's been performing. And, you already know we have some cute AF audience questions to answer, so listen now!.  Mai Huynh Details: Twitter/Instagram: @maisquared Food Instagram: @maisnacks Eric Nam Details: Twitter/Instagram: @ericnam Website: www.ericnam.com -- Black Owned Business: Souk and Sepia WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/31MO2QZ INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/2Hu5uTH FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3kwDCw9 PINTEREST: https://bit.ly/2J2pM6U -- SUBSCRIBE to get the latest Black Frasier Episodes: YouTube: https://bit.ly/33yXkBX Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3a787Vd Spotify: https://spoti.fi/33FG1PA Google Podcasts: https://bit.ly/33B9Gt9 Stitcher: https://bit.ly/2F241SS iHeart: https://ihr.fm/3kkY8Ah Pandora: https://pdora.co/31z7Ru6 Deezer: https://bit.ly/3gFwpYN Connect with Phoebe Online at: Visit the Phoebe Robinson WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/3kxHrlo Like Phoebe Robinson FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3fCjnKg Follow @PhoebeRobinson on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/33DParN Follow Phoebe Robinson on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/3a5xVAT Follow Black Frasier on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/31pKiUC -- About Black Frasier: BLACK FRASIER.
