The Future of Sex

As our attitudes to sexuality become more open and accepting, we’re seeing an increasing range (rainbow, even) of sexual identity and expression become recognised. We’ll be talking bisexuality, polyamory and ethical non-monogamy. What are the freedoms of these different modes of sexuality? Is white-picket-fence monogamy stopping us from being happy? How might sexuality evolve even further in the future … what’s next?

Hosted by Cyndi Darnell.

A good event starts great conversations. Here’s your chance to stay back a while and meet guest speakers. Nibbles provided. Drinks at bar prices.

Middlesex: Queer Week

We’ve come a long way since the bad old days when any sexuality that wasn’t heterosexual, monogamous and sealed by marriage was kept behind the bedroom door and between the sheets (or up against the wall). In a week of open discussion and joyous celebration, we’re exploring sexuality and identity in all their alternative forms.
