ur very first Kickback event coincided with our theme for July 2018, TOUCH, and it was all about intimacy. We assembled a panel of QTPOC favorites to give us a talk on different kinds of intimacy, navigating interpersonal relationships through an intersectional framework, and provided the audience with sex positive frameworks for taking ownership of our bodies, emotions, and sexual health. We had a DJ playing hip-hop and R&B, a table full of Popeye’s,  endless bottles of wine, and all the sunshine the top floor and patio balcony of Strut could provide.
