All workshops take place in our Toronto store, which is wheelchair accessible.

Pre-registration is required for all workshops.  Unless otherwise noted, all of our workshops are open to people of all genders, orientations, and sexualities.  Cancellation requires 48 hours notice to receive store credit. Late attendees who are more than fifteen minutes late will not be admitted to workshop.

Coming out as a Deliciously Disabled, Queer Cripple
new sex toy Coming out as a Deliciously Disabled, Queer Cripple
With Andrew Morrison-Gurza

This workshop will introduce you to a part of the Queer Community we rarely discuss – Persons with Disabilities who identify as LGBTQ+ (The Queer Cripple). Queers with Disabilities are sorely underrepresented in our homo-normative, body beautiful culture, and I aim to change that. A combination of education and personal experiences will invite you into a conversation around the Queer Cripple, the lived experiences navigating both sexuality and disability (ie. What it actually feels like to be queer and disabled), and what they can offer the LGBTQ+ community overall. Participants will openly explore the mythology and fear around sex and disability, and consider why we are afraid to talk about disability in the LGBTQ+ community. Ultimately, through frank, open and honest conversations around disability, sexuality and queerness, the workshop will provide the tools to welcome the Queer Community into the conversation around disability and make it truly accessible to everyone under the rainbow.
