CatalystCon West Announces Keynote Addresses and Pre-Conference Events!
Panelists for CatalystCon West Keynote Addresses
We are excited to announce the speakers for the Opening Keynote Plenary Address: Sparking Communication in Sexuality, Activism and Acceptance. The panel will include Jackie Strano, Shira Tarrant, PhD, Sinnamon Love, and Yosenio V. Lewis and will be moderated by Tristan Taormino. The panelists will address the ongoing debates over sexuality at the local, national and global levels and discuss how they've created their own sparks and been cataysts for change.
The Closing Keynote Plenary Address: Afternoon Tea with Dr. Joycelyn Elders will feature remarks from the former Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service under President Clinton, followed by an informal interview of Elders by Lynn Comella.
Pre-Conference Workshops and Events
We are also thrilled to announce that Tristan Taormino will be returning to CatalystCon West with her pre-conference Sex Educator Boot Camp. The training will be done in two parts: Basic I and Intermediate II on Friday. Also on Friday, Dr. Marty Klein is presenting a clinical seminar, Infidelity: After an Affair, Who Owns the Relationship at which registered attendees can earn 4 CEUs.
Also on Friday, there will be two evening events for attendees that will take place before the Opening Reception. At 5:30pm, CatalystCon will host a Shy/Newbie Get-together for attendees who are shy, brand new to ccon, or traveling alone. Guests can meet other newbies, get a feel for what to expect during the weekend and hopefully make a new friend or two... all in a low-key, low-pressure environment.
A private Sex Worker Meet & Mingle, hosted by CatalystCon's sex worker liasions Sabrina Morgan and Savannah Darling, will also take place on Friday evening. CatalystCon's organizer and staff are allies, but realize that other sex workers are best able to fully understand some of your concerns. Therefore, this event is open only to current and former sex workers. (RSVP is required).
