Part 1: Gender (The trans, nonbinary, bi, poly world-wind)
Maybe you have a crush and have never been with a trans person. Maybe you like to have all the sex but want to know more about STI prevention and transmission between your many gendered partners. Maybe you are bi-curious and want to explore your queerness more. We can talk about it.
Some subjects that might be included are body parts and language; STIs, HIV& HCV pathogenesis (how they are spread), explicit consent; feeling safe; self-care; support and solitude; rape culture; cocks (attached and detachable), strap-ons, trans lady clits and you; penetration or not; anal not just for gay men; enemas, lube and microbiomes; fetishization and transphobia. This will be a courageous space based in harm reduction. This means that this is a safe space where it is okay to make mistakes and for people to let you know that you have made a mistake. It is not okay to attend if you hold any Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist (TERF), views on sex and/or trans people.
This workshop will be a semi-structured, facilitated dialog with sexpert Smitty Buckler. In the past, Smitty has been an HIV/STI tester and counselor, a domestic violence advocate, a trans resource coordinator, a facilitator and teacher, and an organizer among many other roles. They have spent the last several years doing comprehensive research on violence against trans people, especially those with intersecting identities and how that impacts safer sex and health decision making. They have worked extensively with various medical providers and sexperts across the country through various networks and conferences. Smitty is aligned and works with a variety of communities including those inclusive of drug users, sex workers, and people with disabilities. To learn more about the work they have done check out their about me page on their website: SmittyBuckler.com.

After going round with my hosting company, I finally got them to fix the problem but now I need to rebuild my site. Until then please check out CollectiveofGenuises.org to see some of my performance work & Radicalcare.org for some of my organizational work as well as both for some of my web styling.
