Sexuality and Gender


I’m Bethany Stevens, a queercrip sexologist focused on sexuality research, particularly the politics of pleasure and working to end disparities in sexual health. I studied Art History as an undergraduate and completed law school at the University of Florida, later to become a member of the California Bar Association. I have Masters Degree in Sexuality Studies from San Francisco State. My love for lecturing and facilitating workshops has led to invited talks internationally, particularly concerning issues related to sexual health and the marginalization of disabled people. My work can be read in a few peer-reviewed venues, including the American Bar Association Human Rights Magazine, Disability Studies Quarterly, UNICEF’s Annual Report, and the Center of Women Policy Studies. I blog at As a member of the inaugural class of Center of Excellence for Sexual Scholars program at Morehouse School of Medicine, I had the opportunity to work under the 16th Surgeon General of the United States Dr. David Satcher. From 2009-2013, I was a policy analyst and faculty member in the School of Public Health at Georgia State University (GSU). I continue to promote disability justice through my work as a PhD student in Sociology at GSU. Follow and dialogue with me on Twitter @disaBethany.
