THIS IS A MORNING CLASS

Are you ready for Mothers Day and Fathers Day? You can spoil the caregiver in your life with a nurturing morning of partner massage. Learn how to improve intimacy and reduce stress with your partner through massage. In this class we will cover the basics of Swedish Massage, and learn ways to work massage into your everyday life, creating opportunities for you and your partner to escape from stress and open lines of communication through the power of touch.

At the end of this class you will receive materials that you can consult at home.

Slut Shaming: What It Is, and How to Stop It
Saturday, June 11,
5:00 pm
At the Pridefest Grounds, Stonewall Stage
Henry Maier Festival Park, 200 N Harbor Drive, Milwaukee
Join Lucky Tomaszek for a look at the most effective weapon for keeping people down in the patriarchy’s arsenal: Shame. As an employee at the Tool Shed, Lucky works with people every day who struggle to articulate their sexual needs, and even name their body parts, without mortification. As a midwife, she encountered grown folk who didn’t have a clear picture of how conception and contraception works, because they were afraid to ask. We’ll discuss how shame works as a tool of oppression; look at things we can do right now to reduce its effect in our lives; and talk about our own experiences.
