Sexuality Salon: Community Talk Show – Queer Love
January 21 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Join Tanille Geib and community members in Victoria’s live talk show and community space all about sexuality at the Victoria Event Centre! We will bask in knowledge of sexuality with guests who have an intimate connection with the topic of the month. We will celebrate self expression in an artistic way by inviting artists to perform aspects of their own sexuality or perspectives. We will delve into weekly popular media with a critical thinking discussion. We will create a space where community can gather and experience a sex positive, celebratory way of exploring sexuality. We will do it together.
This month’s topic is QUEER LOVE & DATING. How can we cultivate the love & dating relationships that we desire as queer people? Come learn about different sexual & romantic orientations, and mulitiple relationship structures and how it all relates to us being in queer in this community. How do we celebrate our queerness? How do we love & date? What are the challenges in dating as queer people? All of this, and more! Have questions or answers?! Get involved!
Community members & artists:
We are honoured and humbled that this gathering is happening on unceded traditional L’kwungen Territory.

The VEC is centrally located downtown and there are numerous bus stops nearby. Transit info (including distances from bus stop to venue) can be seen via google maps https://goo.gl/maps/a2eM6pTncEL2
Parking map of downtown available here. Map of reserved parking for people with BC Disability Parking Permit can be found here.
Unfortunately our elevator is out of commission, so the only way into the VEC is up 27 wood stairs, 11″ deep, 6″ high. There are wooden 2.5” handrails 38” up the wall on each side of the staircase (54” apart, so not graspable on both sides at once). See further details in ‘Getting Inside’ below:
There are three multi-user, gender-inclusive bathrooms with stalls. One bathroom has a larger stall with its own sink and a grab bar (more details in the ‘Bathrooms’ section below)
As fragrances can be harmful for folks with respiratory problems and chemical sensitivities, we encourage people to avoid wearing/using scented products, including essential oils or other natural scents. However, while we’re working to reduce scents at the VEC, it’s not a scent-free space (see details in ‘Scent’ section).
