Nhakia Outland (she, her, hers) is a queer, Black, woman and mother of three
children. She is a social worker, sexuality educator, sex therapist, speaker, certified
social work field instructor, adjunct professor and consultant with more than 15 years’
experience working primarily with people of color, Black, Latinx/a/e/o and LGBTQ+
communities in different capacities.
Nhakia has worked in diverse clinical, community, private sectors, non-profit and
healthcare settings throughout her career. Currently, she is the executive director of
Prevention Meets Fashion Inc (PMF), a grassroots non-profit that she founded in

being treated when accessing sexual and reproductive health services. PMF utilizes a
fashion-based approach, creativity and innovation to educate about the unique sexual
and reproductive health needs of queer and Black communities.
On the academic front, Nhakia received her Bachelor’s degree from Chestnut Hill
College in Human Service and Women Studies in Philadelphia, PA before earning her
Master’s in Social Work (MSW) degree in Community and Policy with a focus on

a host of other certificates and certifications.
