Sex Down South Conference

Sex Down South  is a three-day sex and sexuality conference taking place October 13th-15th, 2016 in Atlanta, GA. 


Topic: "Oshun Did It: Ancient Africa's Sex-Positive Spirituality"

This presentation will view the spiritual foundations of sexuality through the lens of Yoruba/Ifa, a spiritual system originating in West Africa, and surviving the African Diaspora. The goals for this presentation are to add an indigenous, African perspective of sexuality that is not taboo nor homophobic and to provide a healing balm for people of African descent who originated from spiritual backgrounds that required God and sex be placed in different rooms.

PechaKucha Orlando, Vol. 18

  • Orlando, FL

PechaKucha Night is an entertainment event held several times a year in downtown Orlando. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for "chitchat," PechaKucha rests on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Pecha Kucha is an opportunity to listen, learn, and engage... and unwrap the hidden brilliance of Orlando!
