So far, Momentum has been very encouraging. The keynote panel really energized me to get out there as a sex educator and not be afraid of being young or the new kid on the block on this community. I also was pleased to hear some discussion of queerness and gender. Talk about anonymity was very relevant to me as I think about allowing my public identities to move a little closer to each other. I also got some ideas about where my niche might be as a writer and sex educator, and how that blends with overall queer feminist activism.
I’ve felt isolated before in the sex blogger community, but I felt very welcomed last night and was able to come out of my shell a bit. It’s still interesting how in a sexuality-focused group, it’s hard to just say hey, I find you attractive, but I imagine that gets easier with time.
Don’t forget to follow me @sexpositiveblog for livetweeting, and follow the whole con #mcon!
