Connect. Curate. Educate.
Mx. Chels Morgan, CSE is an Afro-Latinx, Queer and Neuroexpansive* sexuality and justice educator, Intimacy Coordinator, Intimacy Director, and Cultural Sensitivity Specialist working to expand our cultural narratives on human sexuality, to lift the voices of the global majority and to curate a culture of justice, of radical empathy and of expansive individuality through media.
As an educator.
It’s time that we, as a culture, re-imagine our collective narratives on what it means to be human. As an educator, I aim to curate educational spaces that allow for the full breadth and complexities of the human experience. I encourage being held accountable for my language and do my best to curate an environment where individuals feel empowered to advocate for their access needs.
As a sexuality educator, I teach on topics including, but not limited to, BDSM / Kink, alternative relationship styles, queer identity, disability justice and media literacy. I also facilitate workshops on Intimacy Direction / Choreography and Intimacy Coordination as well as courses on Justice frameworks, under the umbrella of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. All of my work uses a variety of social justice frameworks to inform my approach, building off of a long legacy of survivors, of black, trans and indigenous scholars, and of my incredible collaborators in the field of Justice Education.

As a creative.
Our media reflects our understanding of the world around us. It mirrors our views on race, sexuality, relationships, politics, spirituality and violence. However, it is not simply a reflection of our society, but a catalyst for our culture. Through our media, we absorb habits of shame, miscommunication, coercion, supremacy, power imbalance and exclusivity.
My goal as a creative is to reshape the narrative of our media, to showcase the beauty of all people, and to encourage liberation through education, compassion, consent and radical humanity.
As an activist.
I am the grandchild of immigrants. I am the child of artists, of intellectuals and of entrepreneurs. As a young, Queer, Neuroexpansive*, Afro-Latinx creative, I feel that I have a duty to myself, to the incredible elders who have come before me and to those who may come after me to use my voice to pay forward the hard work of those who have fought for my success.
I create to educate. I connect to learn. I strive to achieve.
