Facilitated by Megan Gilron (she/they), "Part 1 Representations of Sex and Gender for Performance " is an online 2hr 45 minute foundational course-conversation focussed on sex education that is comprehensive, intersectional, and applicable to film, television, theatre, and storytelling.
The goal of the course is to empower artistic creators (writers, producers, intimacy professionals, choreographers, performers, etc.) with accurate information about:

  • anatomy and biomechanics of sex and arousal
  • gender, sex, and sexuality
  • puberty, and its impact on the relationship to your body
  • LGBTQIA2S+, biomechanics of sex and arousal

Participants can engage with the material in conversation throughout the event. A Google Meet link will be sent to you through Eventbrite. Closed captioning is available on this platform.
