Queer Talks is a discussion-based bi-monthly bilingual event focusing on a different topic every two weeks. We provide a safe space to LGBTQIA individuals in the community to voice concerns, share stories, reflect and discuss each topic at hand.
If someone calls you a “slut,” what is the first feeling that overcomes you? A sense of shame or embarrassment attached to your love life, or a sense of pride attached to sexual success and prowess? In the second installment of our series on Shame, Queer Talks will look at how we internalize shame based on our sexual identity, our bodies, and how these perceptions could also be shaped by those around us.
