Watch for this at the Dyke March: Women Lovin’ – A Sexual Health Guide for Queer Women

Women Lovin’: A Sexual Health Guide for Queer Women

Produced in collaboration with the Canadian AIDS Treatment Information Exchange (CATIE), Women Lovin’ is a pocket guide that takes a fresh look at sexual health for queer women. Developed, designed and written by women, Women Lovin’ is a bit cheeky and playful, with solid information on sexual health issues for queer women. It’s written from a pleasure perspective. The format includes more than two dozen topics organised around knowledge (“Know your risks”) and options for promoting sexual health (“Know your choices”). Basic information on HIV and other STIs, as well as Hep C, is combined with practical tips and risk-reduction strategies.

The pocket guide includes information about trans women, cis women, trans men and cis men, in the context of being potential partners to cis women. Introductory national resources are also provided.

The AIDS Committee of Toronto plans to have limited copies on hand for distribution at this year’s Dyke March on June 30!

About Dyke March Toronto

Mission: The 2015 Toronto Dyke March works to create dyke-centred spaces because we need — and demand — more visibility within the Pride Toronto Festival. Goals: Our goal is to organize a political and celebratory march, created by and for dykes across the spectrum. We need to create our own space to be political and visible. Dyke visibility is important because we are not fully represented in the Pride movement or in mainstream society. The Dyke March celebrates our diversity and demonstrates the power of our communities. We hope the Dyke March leaves you with the energy to take action, a sense of community, and an appreciation for your own unique dyke glory! Values: The Dyke March values collective organizing to give dykes who are historically oppressed a platform. These include, but are not limited to, trans folks, Indigenous folks, folks of colour and folks with disabilities. We see this as necessary to create social change.
