If you'll be joining us in sunny, warm Minneapolis later this week for the Creating Change conference, be sure to check out this session that combines two of your favorite things - Bilerico and sex! We'll combine some of our own experiences with running our respective sites while helping participants come up with their own campaigns to get publicity for a sexy cause. The session is Saturday at 10:45am.
The Penis That Ruined Marriage Equality
Communications, Media and Messaging - Fundamentals
By examining how queer blogs and media outlets have used sexually provocative stories, advertisements and images to advocate and report on queer rights, we'll examine how LGBT sex-positive messaging can help the cause and how much of our sex lives should be kept behind bedroom doors. What's the difference between promotion and pornography when it comes to politics and when is a little skin too much? And how can one penis ruin the entire marriage equality movement?
And don't forget our annual cocktail reception on Friday evening. This year the event is co-sponsored by the Task Force, Queerty, AfterEllen, and The New Gay. We'll have a cash bar, munchies, and a helluva lot of opinions for one room. We usually draw a pretty big crowd, but we're going all out this year so you won't want to miss it. If you live in Minneapolis but won't be attending Creating Change, you're still welcome to attend our reception!
