Decolonize Your Sex Life: In this session attendees will understand the ways in which our relationships and sexual acts are rooted in colonialism, heteronormativity, and enforce a gender binary. Participants will be led through art both written and visual as well as discussion on ways that they experience these social norms. Following which, attendees will explore what it means to have gender-inclusive sexual practices and ways to have healthy, safe, and inclusive relationships. This workshop is QTPOC centered.

Guiding Questions:
What would your sex life look like without white, heteronormative ideals apart of that?
How do you create a space where you can explore your natural sex that compliments your gender?
Where do we see harm?
How is this revolutionary?
What is it to discuss sex in
How do we make sure that we are still bringing people in? – sex workers, people of trauma

Facilitator: Maisha Manson
