Sex Education Resources

This is a space where I will share resources as I gather on an ongoing basis for information regarding sexuality, sexual health, and transgender health. I encourage you to email me with resources that have struck you as particularly useful.

“I am dedicated wholeheartedly to the field of sexuality education, delivering information from a sex & pleasure-positive, queer and trans-inclusive and feminist perspective through interactive workshops and coaching. I apply my work from a social justice, rights-based lens with empathy, respect, compassion and celebration for all experiences, identities, expressions and bodies. I want everyone to trust that I will give medically accurate information and to see themselves reflected in what I do.”

Image by: Rory Midhani  Autostraddle’s girl-on-girl culture is rooted in basic social values and ideals —  we want women to feel good about themselves, we want equality and visibility for all marginalized groups and ultimately, we’d like to change the world .  We seek to be a fresh, energizing voice for lesbian, bisexual and queer women, one that takes the reader seriously and encourages intelligent discourse, one that entertains with funny, uncensored and brutally honest conversation and content and one that also provides photos of hot girls.  We endorse an “it takes a village” approach to the LGBTQ webiverse. We encourage community and support amongst women on the web and do not encourage competition between websites or other media outlets. We believe change is best accomplished when we are working together as activists, artists and thinkers.  We’re here to listen, to change and we do not ask what our users can do for us, but what we can do for our users!  We are a trans-friendly website and aim to make Autostraddle an accepting and supportive environment for lesbian, bisexual and queer trans women. Although Autostraddle is a website created for and primarily aimed at lesbian, bisexual and queer women, as the community evolves we also are starting to include work by and about non-binary-identified people too.
