Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit Call for Presentations

Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit


The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance presents its annual Sexual Freedom Summit September 19 – 22, in Washington DC.   This is a national event featuring human rights activists, professionals from the legal and medical fields, authors, sexual freedom movement leaders and organizational partners all working toward the time when sexual freedom is fully recognized as a fundamental human right. Now is the time to contact Ricci Levy or Tess Danesi to submit a workshop or panel idea at http://www.woodhullalliance.org/woodhull-sexual-freedom-summit-2013-workshop-proposal/

With the goals for the 2013 Summit, we are especially pleased to announce that Tess Danesi has joined Woodhull as the Summit co-chair. You may know Tess from the event she co-founded, MomentumCon.

families of sexual minorities for the last 16 years.
