Meet Sonalee Rashatwar (she/they), known as @thefatsextherapist on Instagram! They're an award-winning superfat queer bisexual non-binary clinical social worker, sex therapist, adjunct lecturer, and grassroots organizer based in Philadelphia.
This episode was recorded toward the end of March, just as many shelter-in-place orders were taking effect.
First of all, we talk cantaloupes! Our melon chat frames a very serious dialogue about Sonalee's challenges within the social work field and creating an activist community. We also discuss Hindu casteism and how it relates to body image and body purity. The common thread in our discussion is navigating family dynamics and relationships, especially when family members support Hindutva/Hindu nationalism. Sonalee also sheds light about what it means to work as a sex therapist.
