Yael Rosenstock is the Associate Director for the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding at Queens College (CERRU), and a co-founder, facilitator, and researcher of QC Sexploration and Information, a participatory action research (PAR) project. She is currently launching a sex education company to help adults explore their sexuality. She hopes to eventually begin a non-profit sector of the company to develop PAR based inclusive and responsive peer sex education programs in schools and community centers. Yael believes that consent and desire based sex education is key to dismantling sexual violence.
Yael completed her MA in Liberal Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center with a concentration in Psychology and Public Health. Her master’s thesis was titled, “Deconstructing Rape Culture Through an Exploration of Consent, Desire, and Pleasure.” Her undergraduate thesis, “A Not So Silent Voice for Female Sexuality: Empowering Examples from Literature Cross-Culturally,” explored examples of female sexuality in literature to highlight the blatant ways in which female sexuality has been represented through the ages.
Yael’s research has varied but always involves intersections between mental and sexual health and identity. Over the past two years, she has presented at the Eastern Sociological Society (ESS), Desiree Alliance, and the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) Annual Meetings. She is a strong supporter of sex worker labor rights and believes public health has the potential to serve as an access point to address these and other issues of inequity.
