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.
