Stephanie Speaks Here, LLC
Stephanie Zapata is a proud Bronx-born- Boricua sex educator & anti-oppression consultant. She comes to you with nearly a decade experience in the field and is no stranger to the fight for sexual/reproductive freedom in some of the most marginalized communities. For some organizers who find their path on campus, their activism and community engagement fizzle out after leaving the school life. Others, however, were born to be long-term catalysts for change. Since moving on from her Bronx organizing Roots, Stephanie continues to practice catalytic innovation today. She pursued her passion for gender & sexual visibility in education while working as a sex educator at some of NYC’s top non- profits. While doing that work, Stephanie realized that conventional sex education disregarded the needs of system-impacted communities - Black, Latinx, low-income, and LGBTQ communities especially. She also realized how crucial it is for health education to be centered around sexual/reproductive liberation, not just prevention. Respectability politics have no place in sex education. Respectability politics have no place in sex education. Respectability politics have no place in sex education. Today, Stephanie is a social entrepreneur, who has created an educational consulting agency all her own. She has presented keynotes at over a dozen major, notable health conferences, and provides training workshops that discuss sex education based on an anti-oppression and inclusive frameworks. Stephanie’s belief that sex education is an invaluable tool to dismantle major aspects of systematic oppression, has been embraced by many others in her field, and has led to opportunities to bring this insight to communities across the country. After recently being named one of B.E.Q. Magazines 40 LGBT Leaders Under 40, their more recent achievement, made a LOUD smash...ha...see what she did there? In June of 2020, Stephanie successfully cultivated an entire virtual conference, (S.L.A.M), Sexuality Liberators and Movers Conference which brought together some of the country’s top sex educators and clinicians to provide a full-days training. Stephanie is available as a consultant for projects related to sex education, staff/board training, EDI facilitation/training, queer inclusive frameworks/practices & curriculum creation.
