Decolonizing Sexuality: Precolonial + Colonial Sexualities


Decolonizing sexuality means digging into precolonial and colonial sexualities and challenging and unpacking what's behind our individual and collective ideas about sexuality. In this workshop, you'll come to understand the history and uncover how heteronormative ideals, racism and capitalism have played a major role in our beliefs around sex. The class has a rich discussion about this and considers how sexuality, religion, race, gender intersect and obstruct our sexual liberties.
