Lavender Talks: Body Positivity in Kink Culture
Join us for the latest in the Lavender Talks series, presented with San Francisco Pride and exploring a wide range of topics of interest to the LGBTQ world.
In this program, we explore the role the "kink" subculture plays in the larger LGBTQ community.
Join us for a discussion with some local kink community leaders about body positivity, inclusion and exclusion, and different attitudes toward desire. How do issues of age discrimination, conforming and nonconforming presentation, racism and more get addressed by and within the kink subculture?
There might be some surprising answers, as we look at the state of the kink in the age of pandemic, economic crisis, and racial justice.
