BLOOM SPOTLIGHT: Woodhull's Sexual Freedom Summit 

From policy to privacy, closed doors to open relationships, the white picket fence to the dungeon, this is the event where the conversations happen and the vision for the future comes to life. Woodhull Freedom Foundation is pleased to invite you to our 12th annual Sexual Freedom Summit – the event where everything comes together in spectacular conversations about sexual rights. 

The Sexual Freedom Summit features human rights activists, sexuality educators and researchers, professionals from the legal and medical fields, authors, sexual freedom movement leaders, and organizational partners all working toward the time when sexual freedom is fully recognized as a fundamental human right. 

See you there!
