I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting at the 2013 Butch Voices conference in Oakland California. The conference is from August 15-18th.
I will be presenting this workshop, which I am very much looking forward to facilitating:
Doing Relationships with Emotional Armor: For Stones and our Partners
Stones are often expected to be tough, to gut it out, protect our butch hearts. Emotional armor is often valued; at the same time, we are often criticized for our armor, for not opening up to our partners. This workshop focuses on honoring our armor, however thick it may be, even if we are also exploring ways to open up. We will talk about how we do relationships and intimacy, how we take care of ourselves and our partners, how we take risks, and what we need when we do.
I am currently slated to present this on Saturday at 1045am, but the schedule has not been finalized yet.
In other news, “Baxter’s Boy”, a piece that took years for me to finish, is going to be printed in the upcoming The Big Book of Orgasms, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, which you can now pre-order on Amazon.
