$25 (2 CE credits available) for Professionals // Free for Students
Presented by Keziah (Kez) Mayers, MA, LMHC-A. and Richard Sprott, PhD.
Kink and BDSM is impacted by the way our society racializes peoples’ identities, in a variety of ways – how people experience their kink, as well as how people conceptualize their own kink identity, how people experience multiple forms of stigma and discrimination, and how people experience kink spaces. The presentation will review conceptual frameworks, research data, and clinical experience/insight concerning kink and race.
