We have conducted some semi structured interviews trying to collect narratives for the best possible outcome of the workshop and trying to create a sense of trust and solidarity between different sexual minorities and/or a sexual minority and the majority.
I am really excited to see how all of it pans out and how far we are able to go to help break the taboo around sex and dismantle the binary. Here's hoping for the most positive of the outcomes..."
