We are excited to host
VerziiK is a bi+ femme Afro-Latina based in Connecticut, USA. Due to their trauma history, they have focused heavily on healing, reintegration, and shadow work through therapy, reflection, and using tarot/oracle cards as a backdoor to the subconscious. After being diagnosed with ADHD Inattentive-Type in 2021, VerziiK is now on a new journey, making changes to their day-to-day life and shifting their perspective from failure to flourishing. VerziiK has presented POC and LGBTQ+ discussion panels for NELA's Winter Fetish Flea Fair from 2019-2020 and Kink Between the Lines 2021-2022. VerziiK's article, “Kink Belongs to All of Us: Committing to Inclusion,” was featured in the 3rd Issue of the Summer 2021, Rogue Gazette under their former handle, Anima.
Who will be presenting:
The panelists will discuss fawning behavior / reaction. Yes, as in "fight, flight, freeze, fawn", but focusing specifically on the fawn part. We'll be discussing what that might look like from the outside, what it might feel like from the inside, and possible ways to deal with it both as the person experiencing it and as a person who caused it. Also, because we are perverts, we will probably discuss eliciting the fawn response for fun (with consent!) during play!
