Queer Love: Finding It and Making It
Finding It & Making It
In the Course Content section bellow you will find that this course has been divided up into three topic sections for easy navigation and digestion of the material. The content builds on itself to create a truly transformative education, so please move through the sections in order. After watching each video lesson, give yourself ample time to engage deeply with the journal prompts offered for each section. Journal integration is imperative to your success in this course, so please don’t sell yourself short. Dig in!
You can track your progress through the course at the top of your lesson screen. Once you finish a topic section, mark it complete by clicking the “Mark Complete” button at the top right of your lesson screen or at the bottom of each lesson. Marking a section complete will unlock the next lesson for you. Enjoy the journey!
The topics taught in this course inherently challenge much of what we are taught about gender and sexuality in our upbringings with an aim to liberate ourselves from unconscious biases and bring us deeper into our humanity. YES! Because of the complex nature of this content, personal emotional material may arise as a result of this education.
Due to the independent nature of online self-paced learning, it is imperative that you maintain a caring and compassionate eye on your internal emotional landscape. Please seek therapy services if they may support you to heal and integrate any personal material that arises as a result of this transformative education.
Facebook Community Forum
As a part of this course, you have access to our online Community Forum where you can post your questions, find resources, and connect with community. I want to acknowledge that Facebook is not everyone’s preferred platform (it certainly isn’t mine for many many reasons) and for now we are hosting our forum there because it still yields the highest engagement rate. If you are not a Facebook user and don’t want to be, I hear you, I see you, I support your decisions, and this is what we’ve got for the time being.
This module is all about love in the queer community. We discuss intimate topics that are vital to helping your clients empower health, wholeness, and vitality in their relationships amidst gender and sexuality-based oppression. We will discuss our greatest pleasures and deepest pain as we cover topics such as sex, dating, and healing from traumas often faced by the queer community.
- Discover what exists beyond heteronormative relationship scripts, sex, and intimacy.
- Learn how to talk about sexual preferences and bodies in ways that are affirming of queer, trans, and intersex people.
- Bust the biological sex binary with a sexy re-orientation to the body and sex-ed.
- Learn about our pleasure anatomy in a way that is not gendered. Finally!
- Develop skills for creating more safety and representation for trans and intersex people in conversations of anatomy, love, identity, and relationship.
