Laura Ramos Tomás (ella/ela/she) is a sexuality educator and instructional designer who applies her background in design and her experience in non-formal education to encourage people and communities to dismantle the taboos around human sexuality.
Laura founded TabuTabu after having worked in nonprofits supporting survivors of trafficking, sex workers, youth and young mothers living in social vulnerability across Latin America for nearly 5 years, recurrently witnessing the intersection of poverty, lack of access to quality education, gender-based violence, and sexual abuse. TabuTabu began as an initiative to co-create contextually-relevant sexuality education programs with and for underserved communities in the region. Now, TabuTabu works with people of all walks of life to dismantle the taboos around sexuality, so they can engage in healthy and respectful relationships with themselves and each other, and contribute to more empathizing and thriving communities.
