Dick Love: A discussion on positive masculinity that breaks from
homophobia, violence and misogyny.
Discussion with Skye Maule-O'Brien
Skye Maule-O’Brien, will share some of her own experiences and thoughts around masculinity from her sexy sex positive perspective. Aided by a provocative powerpoint and entertaining stories, she will introduce theoretical questions to open a discussion on how positive roles of masculinity can challenge dominant characteristics, language and behaviours that work to define masculinity in our society. Please join in the discussion!
Please be aware that some material being presented could be considered adult content, triple x or R rated. As a white, straight, woman, Skye acknowledges that her use of the word "dick " is only one of many experiences of masculinity. She realizes that this subject may be challenging and though everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion around this particular perspective of masculinity, it will not be open and safe for everyone.
Skye Maule-O'Brien's interests lie in raising social consciousness and transformative learning through critical inquiry and creative-based education. Her approach is based in an anti-oppression pedagogy and works to create more inclusive environments and programming. She holds a BFA in Art History and is currently finishing her Masters in the Educational Studies at Concordia University. Her research focus is on accessible education that promotes community knowledge building in artist-run centres and looks at how race, gender, sexuality, ability, socio-economic status, etc, intersect and inform our identities and realities.
