Karen B. K. Chan is a sex and emotional literacy educator in Toronto. She has taught sex education and emotional literacy for 18+ years. Karen (aka BK) is dedicated to sex education that is plainly spoken, emotionally honest, and grounded in justice.
Known for her accessible style and easy sense of humour, BK speaks internationally in classrooms and at conferences, to youth, parents, and professionals. She is sought after to speak on topics that include applied emotional intelligence; anti-oppression, diversity and inclusion; anti-bias training; sex positive health care; adolescent sexuality; and sexual consent education.
Her 5-minute YouTube video "Jam" (which likens sexual experience to musical jamming) is used as a teaching resource internationally, and her chapter on sex and creative play was part of AASECT's Book of the Year in 2014. BK's writing has appeared in publications like Sexology International, the Tete-a-Tete, SimplySxy.com, and national education manuals. In 2014, BK was named "Service Provider of the Year" by Planned Parenthood of Toronto for her work in sexual health.
In addition to her content expertise, BK has training in Creative Facilitation (Partners for Youth Empowerment Global), Productive Thinking (Tim Hurson), Non-Violent Communication, and is a facilitator for YES!, which hosts intensive gatherings for social changemakers worldwide.
