Hosted by music/pop culture journalist Kelly “K-Fresh” Frazier, Fresh is the Word aims to tell the stories from a variety of different voices including women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community through the artistic lens of pop culture. Joined by comic creators, authors, actors, comedians, photographers, sex workers, scientists, athletes, and even other podcasters, we talk about many topics including overcoming creative obstacles, representation in the arts, gender and sexuality issues, LGBTQ issues, and other topics adjacent to lifestyle and pop culture.
My guest today is Certified Sex Educator, writer, speaker, pleasure advocate, author of Curvy Girl Sex, and creator of LadyCheeky, Elle Chase, who was suggestion from previous guest Anne Hodder-Shipp (happy birthday Anne!). We got into the importance of sex education and to normalize it along with body positivity and so much more. It was a great chat and Elle Chase continually spreads information about sex-positive education and most recently, resources for accountability and actions for black lives.
And before my chat with Elle Chase, I wanted to focus on is how white people can be a better ally during this racial awakening. As a white person myself, I’ve long been aware that black culture has been an important part of my life and I always try to learn more about how I carry myself. Now there’s a lot of information out there and below are some resources I’ve come across to understand this movement more, understand the realities of black people, and how you can be a better ally.
