Healing at Home | Health & Wellness QPOC Community Conversation

January 11 @ 6:15 PM - 8:00 PM
allgo,

Let’s start this year off in community! We are coming together and sharing the ways that we, as queer people of color, care for our community and ourselves right in our own homes. From lemon-honey-ginger tea for a sore throat, to using perilla leaves to help with seafood sickness, each of us has knowledge that has been passed down from family and community. In addition to sharing what we know, we also want this to be a space where we…

An Evening of Self Care | Health & Wellness QPOC Community Conversation

January 25 @ 6:15 PM - 8:30 PM

How to Have Better (Conversations About) Sex

February 4 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

As people of color, our sexuality is repeatedly and non consensually fetishized and disconnected from our own desires and agency. In addition, we’re often actively discouraged from exploring our relationship with sex, and sometimes, this silence, shame, and fear seeps into our own homes. Join us at allgo…

Cultivating Healthy Boundaries in QPOC Love

March 1 @ 6:15 PM - 8:00 PM

We invite our queer people of color communities to join us. We know that queer people of color are full of love and light! However, that doesn’t mean that loving is always easy or that the relationships we have with our lovers don’t hurt us. The stigma that we face as QPOC can often compound in our relationships when it comes to asking for what we need, setting the necessary boundaries for our comfort and safety, and unlearning the normalization…
