Kinky People of Color: The Facets of Consent ft. BlakSyn

Join members of the Pride Center of NJ community to discuss the intersection of POC and BDSM, as well as consent. All are welcome to attend- this event is not exclusive to only those involved in BDSM, all communities can benefit from discussing the importance of consent. "Consent is more than simply getting permission to do something. It is a complex subject that must be viewed from many angles in order to truly internalize what it means." BlakSyn will attempt to highlight blind spots and invoke thought concerning consent. Come prepared with an open mind ready to learn with lots of questions! Light refreshments will also be served, so come with an appetite as well! More about our Guest Speaker: BlakSyn, a queer non-binary man, (they/him) is a practitioner of BDSM, sex worker, author and Philadelphia transplant hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Due to a lack of representation in alt-communities, they began making themselves more visible while educating black and brown individuals about subjects like kink and polyamory. Soon after, they began teaching classes and hosting play parties for QT\POC. Highlighted work includes being featured as a guest writer in XoNecole, sharing a panel with sexually liberated people of color for The Sex Exchange and speaking about being a sex worker of color at Haverford College. You can find them teaching in locations throughout Philly, from their blog (Blaksyn.Wordpress.com) or from their Instagram @Blaksyns .
