Who will be presenting:

Decolonizing Productivity and Performance for D-types

Class Description

The people who are on the left side of the various slashes in BDSM often find themselves faced with community and internal pressure to "perform" dominance and to be 'productive' in their dynamics and in their community work. This conversation seeks to look at where these expectations come from and come up with ways to subvert and decolonize harmful expectations of left siders that hit disabled and mentally ill folks especially hard.
