n/a, virtual

Event Type

LGBTIQA leather and kink communities have been spaces of exploration and revolution. This has been true, especially in performances of gender. Many people use kink spaces as places to explore their desire to dress, perform, or embody gender expressions outside of their own.

Along with teaching attendees how to fuck with gender, this class will:

     Discuss a glossary of terms, language, and differentiate sex from gender

     Discuss the relevant feminist history involved in the evolution of trans and genderfluid identities 

     Discuss various ways that gender and sex are used playfully both in vanilla and kink spaces

     Discuss how to provide safe and comfortable space for trans/fluid/gnc/non-binary partners to discuss their desires and limits

About the Presenter:

As a queer, trans, autistic academic of kink and leather communities, Ferris Oxide (they/them), current Mx International Olympus Leather works to create/support queer and intersectionally centered spaces. Ferris is a dominant switch and has taught workshops about communication, conflict resolution, restorative justice, cultural humility, and various hard skills at events throughout the Los Angeles area and beyond. When they aren’t stomping an eager masochist, they can be found wielding electrified knives and a wry smile.
