I am a facilitator, consultant, and writer of Afro-Puerto Rican descent based in New York City.
I facilitate workshops about and consult on the topics of LGBTQ people, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality at conferences, colleges and universities, non-profit organizations, corporate workplaces, and with community members of all ages. I am also a freelance writer, and my work has been featured on Truthout, the ACLU blog, and at the CUNY Grad Center for the Humanities.
In all of my work, I draw from my lived experiences as a queer, trans, and non-binary person of color, as well as my backgrounds in education, non-profit organizations, and community organizing.
I am passionate about centering the liberation of queer and trans people of color in everything I do, and my mission is to better the livelihoods of LGBTQ people and people of color in schools, workplaces, and society at large.
I help schools, workplaces, and community spaces foster inclusive environments for LGBTQ people through consulting, workshops and trainings, and writing.
Consulting equips your school, workplace, or community space with recommendations on how to better support LGBTQ students, employees, and community members.
Consulting can include coaching; workshops and trainings; reviewing workplace policies, documents, and benefits for LGBTQ inclusivity; writing educational materials and resources; meeting with student and employee groups to assess the needs of LGBTQ students and staff; and more.
Workshops & Trainings
Workshops and trainings are interactive opportunities to learn more about LGBTQ communities and build skills for supporting LGBTQ people in schools, workplaces, and communities.
Workshop and training topics can include LGBTQ 101; trans and non-binary 101; gender 101; inclusive language and communication practices; supporting LGBTQ employees in the workplace; and more.
Writing is a powerful tool to educate people on the experiences of LGBTQ people and how to best support and advocate for LGBTQ communities.
Writing can take the form of blog posts, short and long form articles, academic articles, one-page resources, and educational materials. It can include topics such as how to be an ally to LGBTQ people; how to use pronouns; current events in the LGBTQ community; and more.
