For too long consent education has been universally heteronormative, assuming that the only interactions requiring intervention are those betweeen CIS Men and CIS women. The LGTBQ+ community in not immune to sexual violence, but we require education with a queer lens and frameworks. We’re excited to learn and unlearn with Deb Singh on March 28th! This is so powerful and so much of what we need in our world.
A workshop about navigating consent in queer spaces and relationships.
Show up early for free food and a chance to find out what RyePride will be up to over the summer.
Wednesday, March 28th
3:00pm-4:00pm Free food and hangouts
Shadd Room (beside Oakham Café)
Student Campus Centre, 55 Gould.
