What excites you about your work?

My work right now is expanding from providing equitable, accessible sexuality education to educating sex educators, social workers, intimacy professionals in the entertainment industry, artists, activists and others who hold space on the principles of racial & disability justice and how to curate more trauma informed, accessible spaces and that reach really excites me.

What feels rich and abundant in your work right now?

The amount of support and excitement pouring in lately has been incredibly abundant. I'm feeling my work grow and people become excited by the concept of accessibility and inclusivity and, though there is a lot of work to be done, I am very grateful.

Who do you dedicate your work to?

I dedicate my work to myself. To a child version of me who didn't know they were disabled, let alone queer or BIPOC, and who didn't know why life was so difficult and why certain things just didn't make sense for me despite them making senses to other people.

I dedicate my work to all of the children like that. I hope you grow up in a world that's just a little bit better for you.

I understand the importance of clear, shared language and of allowing methods of communication to be questioned without shame so as to foster the most inclusive learning environment possible.”

Who inspires you? Who are you learning from?

My supervisor and my collaborators inspire me every day. Dr. Bianca Laureano who has empowered me and guided me so much as an educator. My colleagues and friends Nadia Maynard, Gillian Betz and so many others at ISEE who have empowered me to recognize my knowledge and skills and to dive into this work head on.

My mother and father, who are activists in their own right. I learn from everyone around me, every day.

How can people reading this support the work you are doing?

You can follow me on instagram at MxCMorgan or visit my website at if you would like to book me for an individual consultation on sex ed, accessibility, accountability or DEI, a workshop on a sexuality or justice topic, or for an intimacy coordination project.

What is something you didn’t know, that you now understand differently about wellness?

I am the expert in my own experience. What my body is telling me is valid and is information and I deserve to be able to meet the needs that my body is communicating to me.

I understand the value of what my body-mind is telling me radically differently.

What is your own wellness practice? How do you find balance?

I find specific times to lean into the needs that my body is telling me I have every day. That can look like yoga some days, exercise others, food, or just nothing.

I pay attention to what I need each day.
