A Resource Guide For Race Education To Encourage Inclusive Living & Wellness

Sexual wellness is intrinsically linked to racial justice and equality for all, and Black people in particular. This is not only because Black people face the greatest inequalities when it comes to sexual and reproductive health access but also because the sexuality movement has been and continues to be led by the Black community. Pride Month would not exist were it not for the activism of Black, Queer people.


The recent news has impacted all of us in varying ways, and we fully acknowledge that any ongoing conversation and action has to be long-term and holistic. We want everyone to feel they have the resources available to heal and/or do the work going forward, so we have compiled a list of books, media, organisations and communities that are centering and engaging with these discussions.
