Sex Education Zine Café

19 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This is an online event.

For marginalised people – particularly women, queer people, and disabled people – learning about sex often involves educating each other and ourselves outside of traditional settings. Join researchers Kit Heyam and Ashleigh Blackwood for a workshop discussing how marginalised people learned about sex in 17th and 18th-century England, how we do it today, and what our vision for the radically inclusive and consent-focused future of sex education might be.

Inspired by the discussion, you will then be invited to collaborate on making the sex education zine the group wish they’d had. The finished product will be published freely online and deposited in the Wellcome Collection as a community resource.

The workshop will take place online. When you register, you will be sent an info booklet including accessibility guidance.

After the workshop, participants will be emailed a folder of resources for ‘zinespiration’ and you’ll have two weeks to submit your contribution to our collaborative ‘Recreating Sex Education’ zine. Contributions will be collated and the zine will be published online, deposited as a print copy in the Wellcome Collection’s zine library.

Everyone is welcome! The conversation will be about sex, so it will be adult-focused: please bear this in mind if you are a parent/carer and considering having children around during the discussion.
