Join us at Riddell Hall at the University of Winnipeg, 515 Portage Avenue
as we welcome Buck Angel for his presentation: 
The Buck Angel Effect: What's between your legs doesn't make you who you are.

Transsexual educator and adult filmmaker Buck Angel talks about the limitations and effects of current socially constructed gender roles, his personal struggles with sexuality, and how what's between your legs does not define you. 

Buck Angel is an advocate for sex positivism; his message of empowerment through
self-acceptance and being sexually comfortable in your own skin has a pervasive importance for anyone who has ever felt marginalized. His engaging personal story and infectious stage presence make this presentation accessible and thought-provoking, regardless of how you identify.
