1975, Queen helped to found GAYouth, one of the first youth organizations for gays and lesbians, in Eugene, Oregon. In 2004, Queen, with partner Robert Lawrence, started the Center for Sex and Culture to "provide non-judgmental, sex-positive sexuality education and support to diverse populations by means of classes, workshops, social gatherings, and hands-on, practical skills-building events."
Queen began her higher education in 1974 at age 16 at the University of Oregon Honors College. She graduated Cum Laude from the Sociology department of University of Oregon (Phi Beta Kappa) in 1985. In 1998, Queen received a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality with a dissertation on female exhibitionism for the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.
Queen maintains a large non-profit research library and archive of sexually-related material that was established and named in 1994 by forming a nascent non-profit (inspired by Betty Dodson) called The Center for Sex and Culture. Around that time she started appearing nationally in the Americas and internationally in Canada, China, Britain and Sweden.
