When poly, queer, and kink folks look to learn deeper on STIs, we usually meet doctors and physicians who do not speak or hold our sex-positive perspective. Dr. Evelin Dacker will present a sex-positive perspective on sexually transmitted infections.

She'll cover: * Creating a new story around STIs, a sex-positive and shameless one * Understanding HSV, HPV, and bacterial infections and how to reduce their effects on your intimacy * How to reduce STI transmission for non-monogamous, kinky, and queer people * The importance of testing and how to get what you need * Understanding STI transmission risks beyond PIV/PIA * How risk tolerance plays into our stigma and fears * The importance of understanding sexual networks * The importance of communication to reduce transmission

This event will include a presentation on the most common STIs (HSV, HPV, GC/Chlamydia, Syphilis, HIV) followed by a Q & A period. 

Everyone who registers will receive a copy of Dr. Dacker's STI Guide and a $10 discount on the DeSTIgmatize STIs eBook.
