Alphabet Soup – The latest acronym in the rainbow of identities and orientations is LGBTQIAAPP2S+. With all these colorful letters, one may get lost in the search for self-identity and social connectedness. This dynamic and creative workshop provides an opportunity to ask questions and discuss real issues regarding campus life through the lenses of the rainbow.
The Passion Circle – In a patriarchal society like ours, women are still battling for equality, safety and respect. This Listening Circle is an opportunity for women, of all faiths, races, cultures, functional diversity, gender expression and sexual orientation, to come together in spiritual harmony and find strength in liberation. This is particular powerful for young women in college to promote safe spaces and develop a strong sense of self.
Normal Deviancy – YouGov came out with a recent report that only 51 percent of people under 30 years old consider their ideal relationship as completely monogamous, illustrating that many millennials desire non-monogamous relationships. But do they know how? This workshop provides a much-needed safe space to destigmatize the non-monogamy option, while providing crucial life-skills for effective communication between partners.
BDSM 101 – After the book 50 Shades of Grey took the country by storm, BDSM has come out of the closet. However, are students putting themselves in harm ways or are they adept at making ethical and safe choices? This workshop explores the difference between advanced sexual play and sexual assault while providing participants skills to communicate about safe sex, consent and sexuality/body awareness.
