Event Details

Kisses come in a dizzying variety of shapes and intentions, yet mainstream culture tends to invisibilize some to the benefit of others.

In this workshop, we will focus on our kissing culture and explore alternative ways to kiss and connect.


Contact will be negotiated and is optional, but will be strongly encouraged. Exchanges of saliva may happen. We ask you to be mindful of possible viruses and infections in the oral sphere (flu, COVID, herpes) and act accordingly

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid,

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
