You’ve got questions,we’ve got answers.
Admit it: you have questions about sex. Everybody does! That’s why the Students’ Union, SU Wellness Centre and the Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) are teaming up to bring you Sex Week.
Alphabet Soup: the ABCs of LGBTQ+. This presentation is an educational introduction to the LGBTQ+ community that discusses the complexities of language, how to respectfully discuss queer topics, how to debunk some common myths and provides other queer resources, as well as an opportunity for open, safe space question-and-answer period.
Join us to understand buzzwords and what they really mean (e.g., racialization, privilege, decolonization, ableism, normativity, transphobia, internalization, harm reduction, mad pride, genderqueer) and apply skills to real-life scenarios to work across difference. This session is facilitated by Karen B.K. Chan, an award-winning sex and emotional literacy educator in Toronto with 20+ years of experience.

Participate in the Sex Trivia Night & Get a courtesy free pass until 10pm to the weekly Thursden afterwards!
When guilt is a major motivation for our actions, we can end up exhausted, resentful, and unfulfilled. Knowing where our guilt patterns come from is part of the way out of this habit. There are other skills and practices we can do to increase our tolerance for an overactive guilt response. This workshop will give you some things you can put to use immediately. This session is facilitated by Karen B.K. Chan, an award-winning sex and emotional literacy educator in Toronto with 20+ years of experience.
This panel provides a space for voices from the Non-Binary community to educate people on their identity and help provide resources for those interested in learning more.
