Dorian co-founded Sex Discussed Here!, co-created all its programs, and trains and supervises our fantastic team of sex educators. She has presented over 600 programs around the country at colleges and universities, businesses, churches, regional and national conferences, and adult education centers, and continues to present a small number of programs each year.

As a breast cancer survivor who discovered a lump in her own breast at age 26, Dorian knows that being comfortable with her own body may have saved her life.

Trained as a sexuality educator at Brown University, Dorian has authored several articles about the scientific study of female orgasm. In addition, she is a certified birth doula, providing professional labor support to women and their partners during childbirth. (As she jokes, “If I’m gonna teach how babies get in there, the least I can do is help women get them out of there, too.”)

Our Sex Educators
Colin started his exploration into the world of sex ed at age 16, on the floor of his local bookstore’s Sex & Relationships section. He nourished this curiosity as a Yale student, where he majored in Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies. While in college, he trained hundreds of college student volunteers to teach health education in New Haven public high schools as part of the program he co-coordinated. During an internship in England, he researched a guide for LGBT university students in the UK.
Since that time, Colin has served as the Coordinator of Young Men’s Initiatives at Advocates for Youth, the nation’s leading sex education advocacy organization, and as the youngest member of Trojan Condoms’ Sexual Health Advisory Council. He is also the creator of Hooking Up & Staying Hooked, an online sexual health and relationship resource specifically for teen boys. Colin and his partner and dog are recent transplants to Salt Lake City, where he’s surviving the adrenaline rush of being a newbie at every single mountain sport there is.
As a transfeminine educator and advocate, Maybe Burke makes complex topics like gender identity, sexuality, and LGBTIPQQA issues accessible to all. They are the founder of The Trans Literacy Project, a collaboration with trans artists and activists to create an accessible web series about trans experiences from the perspective of trans people. In their educational projects, Maybe works to help cisgender (non-transgender) people know how to talk to and about trans people without being confused or offensive, while empowering trans and gender non-conforming people to take charge of their own place in the world.
Maybe is certified in LGBTQ Competency by the Institute of Human Identity. They name Dr. Seuss as their favorite poet, proclaim a deep love for Oreos, and claim an ability to quote the entire series of Friends. They live in New York City with a cat named Adam.
Stephanie Campos has been teaching about sex, consent, and LGBTQ issues for over a decade, from homeless shelters and inner city clinics to medical schools and college classrooms. She was the Women’s Health Education Program Coordinator at the Community Healthcare Network in New York City, providing workshops and counseling for youth and adults on safer sex, sexual orientation, body image, healthy relationships, and numerous other topics.

As a non-binary, genderqueer activist, an indie rock musician, and an educator, Sean has a long history of working to fight oppression in all forms. Sean got their start in activism in New York City as part of a queer people of color anti-violence collective based at the Audre Lorde Project community center. Sean is on the board of Holding Our Own, a multiracial, multicultural, feminist social justice foundation, and co-founded their local chapter of the Black Lives Matters movement.
Sean has performed at the People's Summit, Netroots Nation, and Trans-Q Live!, and has presented workshops on the history of queer music at colleges and festivals around the U.S. When Sean isn’t performing or presenting, they build and sell fine furniture made from pallets and other upcycled wood, are a dedicated thrift store shopper, and take foosball way too seriously. They live in Albany, NY with their partner, daughter, and cat.
Rachel Dart has been giving sexual health advice to her friends ever since her teenage sleepover party days. She got her start teaching about the subject more officially as a student at New York University, where she was trained by the Office of Health Promotion to teach sexual health workshops. Inspired by that experience, she went on to provide emergency room crisis counseling for survivors of intimate partner violence through Mt. Sinai Medical Center's Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Program.
Rachel also works with the New York City Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence, presenting workshops on dating violence and healthy relationships in high schools, colleges, faith communities, and youth detention centers throughout the city. She has also won several prestigious fellowships in her other identity as a theater director. In her free time, she likes to take on overly ambitious baking projects. Rachel lives with her partner in New York City, where she is still delighted to be her friends' go-to sexual health expert.

Maggie brings extensive experience teaching about sexuality, LGBTQ issues, HIV/AIDS, and healthy relationships to diverse populations: high school and college students, homeless youth, and elders. She has a degree in Gender and Women's Studies from Oberlin College, and is trained as a teacher of the Our Whole Lives comprehensive sex education program.
Maggie's other passion is applied theater, which combines theater, personal stories, and activism to create social change. She toured with a play she wrote to raise awareness about self-injury, based on interviews she conducted, and also with another piece she created that addressed street harassment and other issues women face in public spaces. Born and raised in inner-city Detroit, Maggie now lives in New York City with a three-legged and a four-legged cat. In her spare time, she roots for her favorite roller derby team and practices trapeze, hoop-diving, and other circus arts.

Kaelyn has been teaching about sex since she was 16, first as an HIV/AIDS peer educator at her high school, and then as a facilitator of sex ed programs for incoming first-year students at the State University of New York at Oswego. KaeLyn has a knack for weaving together information about sexual health, sexual orientation, gender, and race in such a way that her audience members describe her as easy to relate to and "a phenomenal people person." KaeLyn lives in Rochester, NY with her partner and their furkids: a spoiled kitty, a bossy bunny, and two sassy guinea pigs.
Connor hails from Montreal originally, where he graduated from McGill University. As a teenager, he devoured the Women's Studies books his older sisters brought home from college, and credits them with profoundly shaping the way he understands the world. While working at the Montreal YMCA, he traveled to high schools to present sexual health classes, and coordinated a sexual health conference to help teachers integrate sexuality education into their curricula. Connor was a Canadian delegate to the Man Up Campaign Leadership Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa, an initiative to end gender-based violence.
When he's not working with Sex Discussed Here!, Connor is the program director of Common Ground Center, where among other events he coordinates Camp Outright, an annual GLBTQ youth camp. Connor spends his free time splitting wood, playing soccer and pond hockey, and baking bread. He and his wife live in Vermont with their son and his collection of fake mustaches.
Kate graduated from DePaul University in Chicago. She describes a "lightbulb moment" she had while taking an intensive HIV/AIDS course in college, when she realized how sexuality "is a thing so intimately connected to politics, religion, guilt, expectation, the ways in which we live and are allowed to live. It's one of those things that seems to explain the world around it." Little did she know at that moment, but she had begun her journey toward becoming a sex educator.
In addition to reading nearly every sexuality book she could get her hands on, Kate trained as a teacher of the Our Whole Lives comprehensive sex education program for adults and college students, and is a hotline volunteer for RAINN, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. She's a certified yoga instructor and the author of an acclaimed young adult novel. Kate lives in Baltimore, MD, and has long wished that she could be a mermaid.
