Ep. 13 Jenny - Sexuality Stigma & Self Love

Update: 2019-09-251


Shame, sexuality and self-love. In this episode we speak to Jenny who is an APSU speaker’s bureau member and a multi-talented woman who has done a variety of work in the alcohol and other drug space. Jenny speaks to us about growing up experiencing family dysfunction in South Africa, about relationship addiction and about her path of coming to love and accept herself as a lesbian woman. This episode is a powerful exploration of shame, identity and self-love.

‘Straight from the Source’ looks at a range of different issues relevant to those impacted by drug and alcohol use from varying perspectives and talks real, honest stories, straight from the source.

We will have more guests and more stories coming to you monthly.

Straight from The Source is the voice of the Association of Participating Service Users (APSU), a service of the Self-Help Addiction Resource Centre (SHARC). APSU is a Victorian consumer representative body, which believes that the needs, strengths and expertise of people who use drugs and alcohol should drive the system and their voices should be heard.

Podcast episodes and further information on APSU is accessible through APSU online, APSU Facebook and through major podcast apps.

Just a reminder that the views expressed by our guests are not necessarily reflective of those of APSU and SHARC.
