Consent, Neurodiversity, & Kink (18+)
Presented by Morrigan Hunter
Sun, Oct 8 from 11:30am - 1:30pm (Pacific)
A lot of neurodivergent people enjoy kink. Even if you are neurotypical, you probably know many neurodivergent people. This discussion-focused workshop is designed to help folks of all neurotypes better understand and communicate with their neurodivergent partners and play partners. The workshop will give an overview of what neurodiversity is and why the neurodiversity paradigm is important. It will also cover how the systemic oppression of neurodivergent people can create barriers to consent and will address strategies for promoting trauma-informed and accessible spaces.
