Join us for, Assuming the Ecosexual Position, a three-day symposium to forge new relationships with the environment, engage in human/non-human collaboration, critique calcified ideologies; and engage in new sexualities—all through the lens of an environmentalism that is feminist, queer, sensual, sexual, posthuman, exuberant, and steeped in humor and play. Ecosexuality offers the opportunity to reimagine our relationship with a world wounded by athropocentrism, capitalism, and ecological destruction. It is a way of living propagated by PS122 icon, Annie Sprinkle, and her longtime partner and collaborator, Beth Stephens who “humbly propose ecosex as one of many pathways to healing the pain of both the present moment and the horrific injustices of the past by encouraging people to love the Earth.” Bring your pets, costumes, plants, your microbial cloud and mingle with various communities of artists, scholars, sex workers, queers, fashionistas, animals spores, water drops, clouds, for a weekend full with rituals, paradigm-shifting panels, performances, poetry, music, environmental activism, food, and features a free Sidewalk Eco-Sex Clinic.
