Workshop III: Sexual Liberation? Living at the Intersections of Race, Class and Gender
June 1 | 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$10
This workshop will dissect the concept of sexual liberation, freedom and privilege— specifically how it interacts with race, class and gender. What does sexual liberation look like when we often witness a predominantly white, heterosexual, male-dominated, anti-trans culture? How do queers, poor people, transfolks, people of color and women get access to the privilege of desire and exploration? How does oppression show up in our bedrooms and between our legs? Join in this workshop as we walk through and dissect
