Public, peer-to-peer sexuality education conference to be held at Brown University

Providence, RI – March 7th, 2011 – On March 19th, the eighth in a national series of free and open to the public conferences centered on the theme of sexuality and its intersection with other aspects of life will be taking place at Brown University, sponsored by the University’s Sexual Health Education & Empowerment Council (SHEEC). Called KinkForAll Providence 2, this is the second KinkForAll in Rhode Island, with previous ones having been held in cities ranging from New York City, Boston, and San Francisco. The conference aims to democratize the distribution of sexuality information and to empower individuals to learn on their own, sharing their knowledge with interested neighbors and peers.

“KinkForAll is a very unique and engaging conference series, so we strive to make the materials as broadly accessible as possible, posting conference material online so people who weren’t able to attend can still get the information. Furthermore, due to the user-generated structure and how the discussions are shaped by the attendees, participation is highly dynamic and exciting,” conference unorganizer and Chair of SHEEC, Aida Manduley, stated. Prior conferences have featured sessions on sexually transmitted infections, leather community leadership, body movement, youth sexuality, polyamory, technology, and more. Many of the sessions were video recorded and are available online for free.

The innovative conference format offers participants 20 minutes in which to facilitate a discussion, give a presentation, or lead a session on any topic related to sexuality. Everyone who attends is encouraged to present in whatever form they find most inspiring or comfortable. Anyone interested is welcome to indicate their participation by editing the web page at http://wiki.kinkforall.org/KinkForAll-Providence-2 and can learn more at http://wiki.KinkForAll.org/KinkForAll.
