ARLINGTON, VA — Sexuality conference CatalystCon has announced its opening and closing keynote speakers for CatalystCon East, to take place in Arlington, Virginia, March 14-16.

The event’s keynote plenary address is: Sparking Communication in Sexuality, Activism and Acceptance." The panel will include Melissa Gira Grant, Del Tashlin, Lauren Marie Fleming and Mo Beasley, and will once again be moderated by Tristan Taormino. The panelists will address the ongoing debates over sexuality at the local, national and global levels and discuss how they’ve created their own sparks and been catalysts for change.

"The four letter word I'm most likely to overuse these days is 'work.’ So I'm psyched that CatalystCon is hosting several conversations about the work of sex work, and honored to be joining the Opening Keynote," Grant said, who will also be presenting a session on the work of sex work and holding a signing for her new book.

PhD sexologist, author and artist Betty Dodson will deliver the closing Keynote Plenary Address. Dodson will be interviewed by sexologist and friend Carol Queen about her decades of sex-positive activism.

"I couldn't be more excited about talking onstage with Betty Dodson — she is my hero and one of the most significant people ever in grassroots sex education and culture change,” Queen said. “We'll cover her life as a fine artist, masturbation advocate, author and muse to the sex-positive feminist community."

More information on both of the keynote talks can be found here.
