Q Con: a pioneering, unique event taking place over two days dedicated to the sexual health and well-being of LBTQ + women* takes place this September. As the first of its kind, we’re excited to lead the way toward an authentic exploration of sexual health and well-being, health inequities, and to contribute to positive queer visibility. The weekend is packed full of discussions and workshops devoted to and celebrating us.

The programme also includes dedicated spaces for movement, social interaction, and exploration including key-note address from sex and relationship therapist Rachel Cooke, a panel discussion dedicated to pleasure, and an array of workshops which can be seen in the schedule below.

This event is completely free.

Tea, coffee and a light lunch will be provided for all participants.

With an impressive line-up of speakers and facilitators, this event is not to be missed!

*Q Con is explicitly trans and non-binary inclusive.

While Saturday morning events are open to everyone in the wider LGBTI+/ally community, the workshops and Sunday events are exclusively for lesbian, bisexual, queer and trans women and non-binary people who align with the LBQT women’s community.
