Hosted by the Acsexxxable Working Group, these sexy "how-to" skill building, discussion-based, and anti-oppression workshops are part of creating an accessible sex party that is fun, respectful, thoughtful and HOT!!!

Trans 101 & Beyond
Rethinking privilege: making spaces and encounters sexy and trans-inclusive!

Sunday October 26, 2008
Sherbourne Health Center

Free pizza and refreshments!

Jordan and Rebecca are two trans activists and educators who are super excited for this workshop! It's time for a trans 101 that fosters discussions on the operation of privilege in sexualized spaces, in sexual encounters, and in intimate relationships. We will be exploring considerations of healthy, trans-inclusive sexualities in a way that is relevant to, and inclusive of trans bodies and trans lives.

Jordan Zaitzow is the current co-facilitator of Trans Youth Toronto: a weekly drop-in for trans youth ages 26 and under. Jordan has been involved in various different kinds of trans activism and has been facilitating trans/cis privilege – focused workshops in Toronto for the last 5 years. Jordan is also a current member of the Canadian Professional Association for Transgender Health (CPATH).

Rebecca Hammond is a former co-facilitator of Trans Youth Toronto and currently works as a sexual health counsellor at Hassle Free Women's Clinic. She is a health researcher and trans health advocate, a co-investigator in both the Youth Gender Action Project (Y-GAP) and the Trans PULSE Project and a member and organizer within the Canadian Professional Association for Transgender Health (CPATH). She regularly facilitates workshops and lectures to community groups, health and social service agencies, and academic audiences on a variety of topics including: trans people and HIV, trans oppression and cis privilege, trans sexual health and trans sexuality, and trans health care needs and trans health access.
