The Magic of Queerness and Pleasure Activism with Terra Anderson
Play • 49 min

I’m joined by Terra Anderson, the founder of Embody Emerge and the Queer Competency Certification. They are a leading voice for LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the sex education, health, and embodiment industries, and someone I personally consider my support system as I navigate my sexuality. I recently had the pleasure of taking their Queer Competency course in an effort to reconcile the deep incongruence between the business that I was leading and then the way I was living my personal life. Even though I signed up for the course for professional reasons, I ended up learning so much about my own queerness and how I show up in this world.

We dive into what pleasure activism means to Terra and how they are creating work around it, specifically with their new course called Peace & Pleasure. We discuss how we can cultivate a deeper relationship with our own bodies as an act of liberation and embrace the radical spirit of queerness. We break down the superpowers of queerness and talk about queerness through the lens of history. I also unpack my feelings around coming out as queer and posting about it on social media.

  • The ways in which pleasure can be a revolutionary act
  • Examples of pleasure activism
