About the Event

We constantly battle heteronormativity, colonial notions of sexuality, gender politics and reproductive autonomy. 

This presentation delves into the hidden world of genetics, neuroscience and medicine. We shall be discussing 11 sex chromosomal compositions that we know of today, presented alongside brain imaging studies of hypothalamic areas (BNST and SDN-POA/INAH 3 Cluster) that recognize gender change in an individual. Neural bases of monogamous and non-monogamous behaviors and advanced medical research into in-vitro gametogenesis and parthenogeneis, shall also be presented.

Our event host is Nishita Rao is a cis-gender, heterosexual, androphilic Indian woman, a sexual assault survivor with 9 years of experience as a BIPOC sex educator. She has an MSc. in Neurosciences with a concentration in Behavioral Neuroendocrinology, a background in Genetics, and is pursuing the Holistic Sexuality Educator Certificate Program at the Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment, an approved organizational provider of CE’s by The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT). Nishita is also being trained by the U.S. Department of Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI) on Trauma-informed Brain Development.

Our tech support person and event angel for the evening will be Jamie Love, Sex Positive World's Executive Director, zooming in from Portland Oregon. She enjoys supporting conversations about sex positivity worldwide.
