Women & Femmes of Color Retreat

Join Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity, Office of Multicultural Affairs, and The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences on Saturday, October 17th for our 6th Annual Women & Femmes of Color Retreat ― a space for KU women and femme students, faculty, and staff to gather in community. 


This year's retreat will feature guest of honor Ericka Hart and focus on celebrating and centering joy and pleasure while being women and femmes of color.




Ericka Hart (pronouns: she/they) is a black queer femme activist, writer, highly acclaimed speaker and award-winning sexuality educator with a Master’s of Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University. Ericka’s work broke ground when she went topless showing her double mastectomy scars in public in 2016. Since then, she has been in demand at colleges and universities across the country, featured in countless digital and print publications including Buzzfeed, Washington Post, Allure, Huffington Post, BBC News, Cosmopolitan, LA Weekly, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, Glamour, Elle, Essence, Fader, Refinery 29, and is the face of three running PSAs on the television channel VICELAND. Ericka’s voice is rooted in leading edge thought around human sexual expression as inextricable to overall human health and its intersections with race, gender, chronic illness and disability. Both radical and relatable, she continues to push well beyond the threshold of sex positivity. Ericka is currently an adjunct faculty member at Columbia University’s School of Social Work and the CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College, a bratty switchy Sagittarius service bottom and misses Whitney more than you.
