I have studied, lived, organized, lectured and written about the intersections of sexuality, justice and political power for nearly two decades and have presented my work in Canada, the US and Australia.

Here are a few of the highlights of some of the work that I love to do best.

Things I teach about (selected workshops and presentations 2010-2015):
