I REALLY can't wait for Thursday! I've got a bag of goodies ready to go for the Social Media room, and I can't wait to see my old friends again, plus finally meet people I've known for YEARS on-line. Will we recognize each other from our social media pix??
The amount of detail work that goes into an event of this size, on subjects of such enormous sensitivity, and with an all-volunteer staff, is almost unfathomable. While pampered divas such as yours truly gear up slowly, the people on the ground at Woodhull haven't slept, probably since the last year's triumphant event.
It's not that Woodhull doesn't do a ton of other things during the year. 2013 saw the Woodhull Alliance help shape federal legislation on reproductive rights, participate in United Nations human rights symposia, forge new links to sex-positive initiatives, and continued to support the often frustrating, usually exasperating, mostly thankless and yet important and ultimately joyful work of building a better, sexier, and freer future for ALL adults. This annual event is our way of celebrating and honoring not just the work we do, but the work of other activists and advocates for Equality, sexual freedom, and reproductive rights.
It's also a time to share the progress we're making with our special project, "Family Matters," spear-headed by attorney and Board member Diana Adams, affirming that ALL families should be equal under law, regardless of structure.We're very proud of the Sexual Freedom Summit 2013. Spectacular scope of subjects, many of the best of the best sex coaches, scholars, sex experts and human rights activists, and uniquely interesting, warm and joyous party events, including a screening of the new indie movie, "Mr. Angel," documenting the life and contributions of Buck Angel to the cause of sexual freedom.
I'll be tweeting LIVE from the event (because tweeting dead would be, you know, wrong). Starting Thursday, the Diva and her divine minions will be sitting in on workshops to send you quotes, give you the scoop on our star celebs and sex mavens.
