Tonight was the first V-Day night!
Yikes! I can’t remember ever in my life being in a room with 55 womyn! Let alone talkin’ about vaginas that much. The round table was fascinating, so many reasons for women to be there: to overcome fears; because they luv their vaginas; some are actresses; to market stuff; to participate in community theater; new in town and want to meet new people; others had a past experience that makes them want to be there; to empower womyn or to raise money for a worthy cause.
We just basically did round table introductions, met the director & crew and learned about how the whole thing works.
Really nice to meet people who do not do geek work, actually not one of them does! hmmm! I felt kinda geekish for the first time in my life! Anyway, at the bus stop i met a womyn who coordinates volunteers to read newspapers for the visually impaired, the womyn who coordinates the Sierra Club Sustainable Campus Project, an executive secretary to a health policy director, and a womyn who is a medical professional accreditation officer. In the room there were sex toy store clercks, broadcasters, actors, womyn who work for CIDA, social workers, retired women, mothers, volunteer coordinators for a variety of organizations, womyn who work in sexual assault centres, sex health educators and womyn who work with breast cancer survivors.
Dang! This is going to be really educational!
Also, we are looking for men to run the bake sale? I am going to hit seb up for his cream puffs, peter for his cookies, michael for his almond chocolate chip cookies, glenn for…
