AWI Our Stories Our Voices presents: The Intersection of Queer Sexual and Mental Health
The Our Stories, Our Voices festival celebrates queer mental health stories told by LGBTQ+ filmmakers and artists. Over three days, filmmakers, mental health professionals, and community leaders will lead insightful, interactive workshops focused on the unique experiences of queer people and their mental health.
The patriarchal medical field has always been a breeding ground for discrimination against queer humans, especially in sexual health and education. Simply asking questions about sex practices comes with risk to personal safety, along with feelings of anxiety, shame, and guilt. This sex-positive session, led by Lucie Rachel, used film and spoken word to explore the mental health struggles of seeking physical and sexual wellness as a queer individual, while providing solidarity and resources to our underserved queer community.
