I am excited to announce that I am being onboarded as a sex educator with o.School! This is a very exciting process, and I'm looking forward to joining the awesome team Andrea Barrica has created.
I intend to continue my journey in making sex education as accessible as possible to my target communities. Ease of access is important in ensuring that all folks can join the discussion. When I originally saw Andrea Barrica’s Medium post, I initially was skeptical, because I found sex positivity to be largely exclusionary of the communities I’m trying to reach.
The more I read, though, the more I realised her vision was actually very similar to my thesis at Howard University, and how much I wanted to be a part of that vision. I quickly contacted her, and then later met her at Creating Change 2017 in person, which was exciting! She told me I was one of the first ten people to have reached out to her, and was interested in onboarding me as one of their sex educator ‘sex-perts’ on #unlearn-ing shame and stigma surrounding sex.
I hope to continue livestreaming workshops with the o.School team for a long time! Please ask me for an invite to the site, and tune in on Sunday, April 16 for my very first livestream, "Consent in the Way of the Prophet," which will bust some common myths!
