This is a virtual event taking place on Tuesday, April 20th from 1:00pm-2:30pm. What would a world without rape and sexual assault look like? What would a healthy relationship with sex and consent feel like in your body? What would it feel like if the trauma caused by rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, misogyny, and sexual discrimination were dismantled? What if we instead cultivated spaces for body positivity and healthy communication around consent? Together, let’s reclaim and heal a society overwhelmed by toxic images and representations of sex… one body at a time. You’re invited to dance you relationship with My Body, My right.

Thursday, April 29: Diverse & Resilient Queerantine
Join us for our panel discussion about ethnical and consensual polyamorous relationships. Nick Ross, anti-violence advocate, will be facilitating this conversation with a panel of Queer and Trans folks. We are queering Sexual Assault Awareness month by diving into a frank discussion about ethical polyamory, consent, and boundaries in poly relationships. Nonmonogamy is never an excuse to cause harm or cross boundaries. How do we navigate these relations while establishing and maintaining our boundaries, always checking for consent, and loving ourselves and each other? We learn about ourselves from sharing community with each other, so join us! FB Event page: https://fb.me/e/hs7LFbjDe
