Keynote: Cultivating Your Sensual Self as an Act of Resilience

April 7 | 4:00-5:00 PM

Sexuality doula, author, and sensualist, Ev'Yan

Whitney, will speak about the practice of sensuality as a

liberatory act—one that is both pleasurable and crucial as we

navigate this world as marginalized individuals. Part lecture,

part practice, Ev'Yan will speak to how we can begin to cultivate

our sensual self in ways that are easeful and accessible to us and

they'll also help you reconnect to your sensuality with joy and

authenticity. The public is invited to this keynote held in the Bill

and Vieve Gore Auditorium and streamed on Zoom.

Please visit eventbrite to register.

Westminster’s Pride also includes the unveiling of a LGBTQ book display at the Giovale Library, and workshops on burlesque, positive talk, queering sex-ed, wellness through art, and makeup for gender confirmation. Exhibits across campus inform on local queer history and ecology.  Pride wraps up with a queer prom. Visit visit Eventbrite for full details.

Pride is put on in collaboration with staff and Queer Compass, a student-run and administratively supported institutional program for LGBTQIA+ students. Pride is a chance to expand connection to faculty, staff, alumni and the greater Utah community.
