Introducing this week’s Hump Day Hero: Melissa Tapper Goldman! She’s a media-maker and the creator of documentary Subjectified: Nine Young Women Talk About Sex.
My focus is on the power of storytelling and the compassion that it creates in people. I see my work as facilitating storytelling, both inviting people to share their experiences, and creating spaces for good listening. Subjectified is a compilation of women’s personal narratives, but it also inspires people to begin their own conversations.

This week’s featured Hump Day Hero, Laura Anne Stuart, owns the Tool Shed erotic sex-positive store, writes a local sex advice column (SEXpress), coordinates sexual health education and violence prevention at Northwestern University, teaches comprehensive sex ed as part of Our Whole Lives (OWL), and leads sexuality workshops in the Midwest.

Every Wednesday we highlight a Hump Day Hero over at the CSPH: today, it’s Karla Diaz, a sexual health educator (focusing on HIV prevention and women’s health) for the Latino Community in Philadelphia:
My goal is to empower Latina women to become experts of their anatomies and physiologies so that it becomes a chain where our future generations are able to discuss and embrace their sexuality. Much has to be done, one of my passions is to start basic, I like teaching anatomy 101 because I believe once a little of knowledge is shared a sense a pride is established. Knowing about our bodies gives us the tool of knowing which is usually denied to us by the silence that surrounds sexuality in our Latino communities.

Today we celebrate the CSPH’s 50th featured Hump Day Hero, Shannon Sennott! An LGBTQ educator and psychotherapist, she’s the founder of TRANSLATE GENDER, Inc. and works to challenge gender-based oppression through therapy and community activism.
My intrinsic determination to be liberated, from a young age, is the foundation of my identity as an activist in the movement to end gender oppression. But when I realized that the territories of my professional identity landscape as a psychotherapist were all connected through a language mired in a medical discourse that was inherently misogynist and anti-feminist I committed my focus as an activist to the to development of non-pathologizing therapeutic approaches to working with differently gendered people and their partners and families.
