I create for social justice. I wrote a book and gave a TED Talk about gender. I design edugraphics & doodles and write articlesabout gender, sexuality, identity, and oppression. I perform live comedy shows about S.E.X., snap judgments & oppression, and prejudice, faith, & identity. I speak and deliver keynotes about social justice issues that are tailored & outcome-oriented. I publish curriculum & activities to help educators institute Safe Zones for LGBTQ folks. I consult social good organizations on improving their digital efficacy and educational accessibility. I print socially-responsible greeting cards.

Social Justice Comedian

Hi! I'm Sam and I do a lot of different things, but the moniker "social justice comedian" is something that fits, and helps make sense of how I approach everything else. And yes — "Killermann" is my real last name. Sorry.

I write a lot. I have two books out, A Guide to Gender and Unlocking the Magic of Facilitation, several that I've contributed chapters to, and more on the way. I also blog and write articles in a few places online.

I've given 3 TEDxTalks, and I get to spend a lot of my time traveling and doing keynotes all over the place (I also do assemblies). Speaking is one of my favorite things to do. I tend to talk about gender, sexuality, or activism in some form.

A lot of what I'm known for is doodled in some way. I create edugraphics and comics, made a bathroom sign that's being used on three continents, design and code my own websites (like this one), and serve as the Director of Creativity for hues, a global justice collective

A forever work-in-progress:
this site, and me.

Hey. You. Yes, you.

Welcome. This site is meant to be a professional what’s-what, showcasing the things I do and providing links between my work. It’s safe to say it’s still very much a work in progress, not that it won’t be that forever, just not so much.

I’m the Director of Creativity for huesa global justice collective. And that’s where I spend most of my time creating these days, but I still create individual efforts that will land on this site.

Oh, and for the record, noting that this is (or will be) my more “professional” [scare quotes] site, if that’s not your bag you can find my “personal” site, browse the ever-so-casual www.samkillermann.com (I call it “Dear World”).

Never ask for permission to smile,
