Popular culture likes to remind us that the key to a successful relationship is communication. But what does that look like at the moments when you're feeling ashamed, self-conscious, avoidant, worried, jealous, attracted to multiple people, or feeling trapped in domesticity? This interactive and experiential workshop will include an exploration of some of the unique experiences queer people face when seeking both casual sex and long-term relationships. We also delve deeper into our own attachment styles, approaches to open relationships, experiences of jealousy, and the nitty-gritty of relationship communication.

This workshop is for all of us: single, coupled, polyam, and more.
