Mataoe Aiden James Nevils
They/Them, Atlanta, GA
Mataoe is a Harm Reduction Specialist who serves their communities in many forms; from advocate to educator and everything in between. Upon completing their degree program in 2018, Mataoe began working with the LGBTQ+ community through health advocacy, community wellness, and clinical support. Through this work, they realized the severe lack of care for Trans and Trans Masculine People, especially centering sex work and sex workers rights.
The experience of balancing both their corporate job and their experiences as a sex worker means that Mataoe is able to connect directly with the need for intentional harm-reducing corporate policies, cultural change in healthcare, and education on sexuality and sexual identity. For their work, Mataoe was recently featured in an article by Decriminalize Sex Work (a national organization with a goal to end the prohibition of consensual adult prostitution).
Mataoe has also spoken on panels for NYTAG (New York Transgender Awareness Group), Decriminalize Sex Work, Refinery29, and VICE on trans awareness and trans-masculine visibility. Their work intentionally centers the lives and experiences of black trans and queer communities.
