 Sexual Attitudes Reassessment Course
June 24-27, 2021

17 Guest Speakers: 14 CEU + Optional 6 CEU

Sexual Attitude Reassessment is colloquially referred to as diversity, equity, and inclusion training in the field of sexology. However, SAR is much more than that. SAR is a bridge 'from' cis-hetero-monogamous-ableist kyriarchy and other forms of erotic marginalization 'to' embodiment, compassion, and joy.

Allison Kirschbaum, PhD
2021 SOGIE Chair

The Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression (SOGIE) Committee is one of SSSS' newest committees and I'm thrilled to be serving as the committee chair. The board created the committee with the goal of focusing more on equity, inclusion, and justice specifically around issues of sexual and gender diversity, and I'm lucky to be serving on the board with a brilliant group of folks who have also dedicated their careers to this cause.

We've only met a few times, so our mission statement is still in the works, but so far we've been focused on ways to make SSSS (both the organization and the annual conference) more accessible to and representative of sexual and gender minorities. We're hoping that some of our committee's actions will result in SSSS being an organization that better spotlights the work of trans* and sexual minority researchers, particularly work that is inclusive, rigorous, and aimed at improving the lives of SGM folks. We hope that the organization (and our committee!) can continue to uplift and focus on the voices of marginalized groups--especially within academia and sex research. We have a lot of ideas and work to do, but we're excited and honored to help make some improvements within an organization we all love dearly!
