Sex & Pleasure as Tools for Community Healing
In what ways do pleasure and sex based organizing led by Queer and Trans People of Color contribute towards collective healing and a more equitable society? The “Sex & Pleasure as Tools for Community Healing” track will highlight individuals and collectives doing sex and pleasure based work in their communities with frameworks that center working class poor people, consent-based relationship building, alternative economic models outside of capitalism, and uplift bodies traditionally excluded in sex and pleasure practices. This track will also emphasize how cultivating community based sexual resistance is a catalyst for creating community spaces and events that celebrate and encourage collective joy, play, and erotic expressions free from shame. Participants will leave skill-sharing workshops and discussions with practical skills and tools to use sex and pleasure based strategies in their own city or virtual worlds to continue building movements towards liberation.
Call for session proposals:
House of Huitlacooch is excited to announce that we are coordinating a track of workshops for the upcoming 2022 Allied Media Conference (AMC). The AMC2022 conference will take place from June 30th to July 3rd 2022 and will be a hybrid conference, convening national participants online and curating a hyper-local, in-person convening for Detroiters, Metro Detroit residents and communities throughout Michigan (occupied Anishinaabe, Peoria and Meskwaki land).
We are calling out all pleasure and/or sex based organizer/educator/practitioner to submit a workshop proposal to be included in our track. We are looking to highlight individuals, cooperatives and collectives that are using pleasure and sex based practices and media to dismantle body shaming, financial oppressions, finding pleasure in community building, creating spaces free of shame and popular educational opportunities for their community. Our goal is to uplift the work being done by Sex Workers, Organizers, Educators and share those skills with participants to further works towards a freer society. Queer & Trans People of Color to the front! <3
