I Have a Right to Pleasure

Join members of Survivor’s Sanctuary for the next installment in a series of bi-monthly workshops in April, and June. ‘me too.’ has invited content experts to bring Survivor’s Sanctuary themes to life in interactive workshops. Members are invited to build community and deepen their healing journey as we collectively explore healing in action.

This month, we will continue the series with Dr.Sami Schalk. Dr. Schalk is an associate professor of Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is a fat, Black, queer, disabled femme whose research focuses on disability, race, and gender in contemporary American literature and culture. Dr. Schalk is the author of Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race, and Gender in Black Women’s Speculative Fiction and Black Disability Politics. She is a pleasure activist and artist whose writing, modeling and self-photography works insists on pleasure both as a political issue and a source of power for marginalized people.

Together, we will explore the role of pleasure in our lives and how we can access it on purpose.

This workshop will center the experiences of survivors of the global majority.
