Ericka Hart

Keynote Speaker: Activist, Cancer Warrior & Sexuality Educator

Ericka Hart Biography

A kinky, poly, cancer-warrior, activist, and sexuality educator with a Master’s of Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University, Ericka Hart has taught sexuality education for elementary aged youth to adults across New York City for over 10 years, including serving as a Peace Corps HIV/AIDs volunteer in Ethiopia from 2008 to 2010.

Diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer in May 2014 at the age of 28, she realized that neither her identity as a queer black femme, nor her sex life as a survivor, was featured prominently in her treatment. She decided to do something about it: going topless (and viral) in public, bearing her double mastectomy scars to end the lack of black, brown LGBTQIA+ representations and visibility in breast cancer awareness.

Dismantling the ways that systemic patriarchy and anti-black standards of beauty affect our everyday lives, Hart is shifting ingrained cultural modes and attitudes on chronic illness and posits visibility as vital to any radically inclusive movement toward equity. But it is her work on the medical industrial complex that forces us to see our institutions and systems of care as complicit in the perpetuation of illness in marginalized communities; unabashedly centering and sentient such that queer, trans black, brown and femme voices aren’t lost among the drone of scholarly research less skilled than Hart in bringing academia to the places it refuses to go.

Audiences around the world admire Hart for her ability to challenge anti-blackness everywhere it rears its head–from the front pages of magazines, fashion week runways to the lectern. She is committed to empowering students to make a difference in the world and with each other, opening up robust discourse that connects sexual health and wellness to the systemic issues at the root of social injustice, helping students at over 20 colleges and universities across the country this past year alone discover actionable steps to confront those issues powerfully.

Ericka Hart Speaking Topics

Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention: For Festivals, Organizations, and Individuals

Consent is more than sexy, it’s necessary. Oftentimes when we talk about sex, the focus is on pleasure but we forget that there are steps way before pleasure is achieved. This interactive, gender inclusive workshop explores consent as a necessary aspect to any encounter, challenging the socialized myth that when it comes to sex, consent is confusing, awkward and optional. In this training, participants will have the opportunity to parse how we as a society relate to consent, learn and be able to list the elements that are necessary for sexual consent to be present and gain a new freedom in navigating sexual experiences that always include consent as the foreplay (and lube, if you will) of life.

Where Are All the Black People?

WAATBP, is a multimedia interactive storytelling experience that opens up a larger conversation on the deeply human, nuanced facets of the macro issues that black queer and trans people face, particularly as survivors of trauma, and the ways in which we can use our own personal narratives to identify, and then divest from systems and institutions that impact our ability (and means) to heal.

Sexualizing Cancer Pt.2 (for Medical Practitioners and Cancer Patients)

A breast cancer diagnosis alone can impact an individual’s sex life. Sexualizing Cancer has also been created for breast cancer patients at diagnosis, during treatment, and post-treatment who are looking to reclaim pleasure and have sex and sexuality availed to them as a powerful resource, whether single or in partnership. This talk and accompanying curriculum is designed to support medical providers, medical school students in residency, front line staff of hospitals to be inclusive in their services to diverse populations. This talk is tailored to medical providers working with breast cancer patients, but is applicable to practitioners specializing in any chronic illness.
