Projects and Presentations
Advocacy and Curriculum Consulting
I enjoy working with educators, advocates, and organizations who are seeking support in creating anti-racist LGBTQ+ spaces. I meet people where they are in their journey and provide support, recommendations and free resources to further your integration and affirmation efforts.
LGBTQ+ Spiritual Organizing
My advocacy work fuses my spiritual approach to wellness and draws on the roots of my Catholic and Buddhist upbringing as a biracial Chinese and Polish person. I am invested in dismantling the divide between LGBTQ+ and religious communities by creating spaces and learning opportunities for deeper understanding. Find more at www.houseofourqueer.com
Sexual Health Advocacy
Comprehensive, anti-racist, LGBTQ-centered sexual and mental health supports the core of inclusive curriculum advocacy for all students. Sex and body shame fall disproportionately on QTBIPOC youth. I have a virtual youth-centered workshop in this area, and have taught and presented on this issue at the school, local, state, and national level.
5 Lesson Online Course
The Decolonizing Gender Mini-Course is for teachers who want to better understand how gender-based stereotypes show up in their classrooms, and how to create classrooms where all of their students can be themselves, regardless of gender identity or expression.

This workshop can be tailored for the classroom or the workplace.
In this session I will provide context for the gender binary as a lasting legacy of colonization in our country which continues to affect us all. We’ll will reflect on their own gender experience, better understand the indigenous roots of expansive gender identity and expression, and leave with some practical tips for how to participate in creating a more inclusive and affirming environment for trans and non-binary people.
In this presentation, I provide context for the gender binary and the ways that it continues to show up in our society, including our work places and in elementary classrooms. Participants will reflect on their own experiences, learn critical gender terminology, and leave with concrete action steps.
LGBTQ+ Spirituality: Building Your Own Spiritual Toolbox
Finding grounding spiritual practices and rituals can be challenging in the LGBTQ+ community. Bex Mui, she/her, will share her spiritual journey and her ever-growing “spiritual toolbox” which currently draws on her Catholic roots and Chinese Buddhist practices, along with a blend of magick including tarot and astrology. What might a queer and trans-affirming spiritual practice look like for you?

Unpacking Power and Privilege
In this 1-hour virtual session, Bex Mui, M. Ed., will guide participants through an exploration of the many facets of identity from race to sexual orientation to gender and even spirituality, and the ways that these connect and overlap. We’ll discuss the aspects of our identities that seem to appear on the surface, and challenge the ways that we often unknowingly create assumptions about people’s experiences. Bex will share her own life journey and invite participants into reflections about where power and privilege live in our society, and what we can all do to create more just and equitable working environments.
Building Healthy Relationships
Strengthening Boundaries and Consent
This virtual, 1 hour workshop is student-centered and aimed at middle or high school students. I present my proactive approach to strengthening students’ understanding about identity in order to help them better know and then communicate their own boundaries. I teach perspectives about intersectionality, gender and bodies, sexual orientation fluidity, and a variety of connection and relationship structures. Students reflect on their own identities, wants, and needs to strengthen their skills in healthy relationship building - with themselves and others.
Social Justice Confessional
Share your questions freely!
This virtual offering invites participants into a shame-free, judgement-free space to truly learn about LGBTQ supportive actions. As a life-long educator (and learner), Bex understands the importance of being able to ask the questions we have, and even share the comments or actions we've been chastised for by the advocate community to be able to truly learn and work towards change. Questions can be submitted anonymously beforehand and/or shared in the safe space of the Social Justice Confessional.
Made just for you!
Bex is a dynamic professional speaker and teacher who enjoys creating unique presentations to meet the needs of a diverse arrange of organizations, schools, and communities. She has a wide range of expertise within LGBTQ+ and Equity work, and is adept at addressing the needs of any community.
