    THURSDAY, MARCH 4 | 1:30 p.m.

    Sexual health and wellness are inherent to any movement toward social justice and pleasure for all; especially when considering the intersectionality of our identities. This conversation will explore sexual health and wellness from a queer, anti-racist lens.

    It will center those who navigate society from its margins and help participants identify their own complications in racialized systems of unjust, foster practical ways to make spaces safer for marginalized groups and apply a pleasure and consent based inclusive approach to their professional and personal lives.
