Black Sexual Health Experts and Healthcare Providers You Should Know

By ASTROGLIDE Team Sexual Health

As both an organization and a brand, one of our core values is inclusivity. At ASTROGLIDE, we strive to represent diverse perspectives and people in the sexual health and wellness space. We work with brand ambassadors, experts, and our staff to create content for you that informs, educates, and entertains. We know we can do more.

As we examine the types of content we create and share, we are committed to amplifying Black voices in healthcare, sex, relationships, and sex education and wellness. We make this same commitment to BIPOC and LGBTQ voices. Sex, love, health, and relationships are human experiences that deserve to be depicted in the diverse and personal ways that they are experienced.

We encourage you to follow and learn from the Black experts, educators, and healthcare providers that we’ve listed below. If you have a favorite voice in the sexual health and wellness community that you would like to share with us, please tweet us @ASTROGLIDE.
