First Thursday Discussions @ Gallery Erato
Sep 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Pan Eros Foundation is pleased to create space for people to meet, talk, and share conversation and ideas. Each month, Pan Eros will host a discussion at Gallery Erato with a different topic to encourage the sharing of ideas and to create and expand communities. Pan Eros means “all love” and we support participants in cultivating and celebrating their sexuality. To support this mission, our monthly discussion topics will range among the educational and artistic realms.   Our goal in hosting these meetings is to grow a community that has rich conversations about sexuality. By fostering open discussions, we hope to end the stigma around sex and sexuality so that people may live more authentically and happily. Each month’s topic and host will be announced as they are confirmed. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, and religions are welcome and celebrated. Kindness and a willingness to respect another point of view are expected.

Body Awareness for Better Sex @ Gallery Erato
Even if you have body dysmorphia (and/or gender identity disorder), it is possible to attune to your inner energetic channels and enjoy sex more. Even if you have a great relationship with your body, you will still take away from this workshop. We will utilize different movement modalities, including yoga and dance, to explore our bodies in new ways that help increase neuroplasticity and improve interpersonal neurobiology. But no experience is required. Please come as you are – able bodied or disabled by our ableist society; cis, trans and/or some other gender; heterosexual, queer and/or other sexualities are all welcome here. Sex worker(?), you too deserve a chance to love and accept your body and are more than welcome. The instructor has experience with all of these marginalized bodies. Purchase tickets here!   No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time. Water available. Please bring your own cup or bottle. Open to all 18+ All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, bodies, body types, abilities welcome and celebrated.

Space Accessibility information: Held at Gallery Erato which is a street level space. One step up is required to enter.

Facial masks will be required and proof of vaccination or a negative test taken just prior to class.   About the Educator: As someone who has been historically excluded from dance and most yoga studios as a gender nonconforming queer trans person, smitty has worked to overcome many barriers in order to access movement spaces. They are now a (certified 200 hour) Yoga Instructor through Poseurs’ School of Magic. They have studied modern, lyrical, hip hop and Gaga with Danielle Agami, Isaiah Tilman, Dani Tirell and more.

In 2004, they started the only QT artist nonprofit focused on intersectional identities, the Conspiracy of Geniuses (CoG).

Finding Intimacy in an Uncomfortable Body 7:00 pm
Finding Intimacy in an Uncomfortable Body @ Gallery Erato
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
An in person discussion group for people having difficulty finding intimacy using their body. A $5-10 donation is requested to offset the cost of using the space. The first Wednesday of the month is for self identified Trans people only. The third Wednesday of the month is for anyone who self identifies with the topic. (Except for the 3rd Wednesdays in February, May, August, & November) This will be a group discussion for those of us who are seeking ways to find intimacy with ourselves and others while in a body that gives us some degree of unease and discomfort. That discomfort may be labeled as Dysphoria or Dysmorphia, but the scope of this group is not limited to those specific labels. The idea of Intimacy will include Physical, Mental and Emotional Intimacy, not limited to just the idea of sexual contact. I, as host, will share some of my personal experiences, successes and failures with anyone who is willing to hold the space for me, and in return I will hold the space for them to do so. The doors will open at 7:00 and there will be some social time before 7:30 when the doors will be closed to newcomers. We will have an opening circle, and begin the discussion. My intention is for this group to be educational and informative, I hope everyone finds the event to be therapeutic, however this is not therapy, and I am not a therapist. This discussion matter can be very intense and possibly triggering. Attendees must keep that in mind as they share their own experiences and listen to the experiences of others. Attendees will not be obliged to share anything they do not feel comfortable sharing, but we all have a responsibility to hold the space for each other to express ourselves honestly. Nudity will be allowed in the space for anyone who would feel comfortable being so, but the event is not about sexual contact, and that will not be allowed. This may very well be an intense space where we will speak intimately of our difficulties. I believe that this discussion will be of great benefit to myself, and for others. In order to do so, we must keep in mind that a lot of intense emotions may come to the surface. We must assume that we, individually, will find something triggering during the course of the evening. We will all hold the space for each other as best we can, but ultimately Attendees will be responsible for holding their own shit together.   About your host, Jadzia: I am the host April, but I most commonly known as Jadzia in the Kink and Sex Positive community. I have been living openly as a Queer Trans Person for 7 years, and I identify Kinky and Sex Positive. I volunteer with the CSPC, and have been a volunteer with other Queer and Kink community organizations. I care about finding peace within myself, and helping others to do the same. My knowledge comes from my lived experience. I am aware of difficulties in life that I have not and may never experience, and I acknowledge there are blind spots in my understanding and ways of thinking of which I am not aware.
