Pride In What We've Survived with Emily Russo

Category: POV Podcast

Author: Aria Vega

As Pride Month winds down, we want to highlight the experience of disability, which is more common among LGBTQIA+ folks than the general population. And the pandemic has added many to the ranks. This week, sex educator and long-COVID survivor Emily Russo stops by the show for a conversation with Aria about becoming disabled in 2020, how it intersects with queerness, and having sex in a changed body.
