#var:page_name# cover

Dearest pals! We are so excited to invite you to a facilitated conversation about navigating hooking up in ways that feel affirming, respectful, positive, hot, exciting, and fulfilling.

This workshop was imagined to create a safer place for a discussion around hooking up! Through various north american cultural expectations and the popularization of dating apps, there is a lot of pressure to exist and participate in "hookup culture" through specific and often binaristic societal scripts.

We hope that this dialogue can offer a comfortable space to relate, discuss, and share as much as one would like about the topic of hooking up: how to navigate consent through apps, privacy, holding rejection, and the depth of reflection and feelings that come with.

There’s no need to come knowing all the answers to our pressing questions, but rather to spend some time with people that can relate, share stories, and swap skills.

Facilitator Bio:

Mia Habib is a first year student at Dalhousie University and a new volunteer joining the team at Southouse Gender and Sexuality Centre! Being passionate towards the topics of feminism, sexual health, and gender and sexuality, Mia heavily enjoys having and navigating open discussions about these important topics that lead her to another level of connection with her peers.

Access Notes:

The space is accessible via ramp however, the doors are not automatic. There is an all genders washroom equipped with grab bars, but the door is narrow. We will be providing snacks/ tea and coffee. The space is not scent free due to some recent scented toiletry donations, but is a low scent space. Free event!
