Together, We Are Doing Amazing Things
Hey, how are you?!
2018 Celebrating Sexuality Festival
Such a fantastic weekend! I am absolutely blown away by all the amazing people who helped to make this weekend so special. Certainly one of my favourite weekends! ..so far ;-)
This year's attendees have been sending me feedback and this will help enormously to tweak some things as we strive to make 2019 even better. Photos will be posted on the website soon and all the thank you's below :-)
For the first time ever, I offered tickets for the upcoming year during the weekend and I am excited to let you know we sold over 20 tickets during the festival to those people keen to attend next year.
How amazing is that?!
The official 2019 ticket launch date is not yet confirmed (likely late January) and ticket prices in 2019 will rise however..
I am blown away by the number of people who wished they had secured their ticket so.. I have decided to offer a limited number of pre-sale tickets - if you would like to access them, email me ASAP!
The offer is strictly limited and I would love to see you there :-)
>>email me if you would like notification of limited pre-sale tickets - there will be payment plans available.
2018 AfterGlow - Come and Hang Out!
As is our tradition, we are having a post-festival meet-up – AfterGlow. Come down and chat all things 2018 - and 2019! Festival with me, some of the crew and attendees.
You are absolutely welcome to meet even if you didn't make it this year
Another way to stay connected - especially throughout the year - is via our Celebrating Sexuality Community Facebook group - you are all welcome to join wherever you are in the world >>Click here
Okay...I also have some Thank You's!
First of all, to our fantastic presenters, you are doing amazing work! Thank you for all the time and effort to provide such high-quality workshops. Highly appreciated by the whole community.

Our 2018 counsellors, Mark, Craig, Evon, Ren and Richard for holding the much-needed spaces for our attendees and crew during the weekend. Such an important aspect of the weekend – we love you!
My amazing crew – supporting set up and pack down and all the things needed to make things comfortable for everyone – thank you for stepping up and helping the weekend run so smoothly :)
Rola for her fabulous spinning of tunes and Jac for her gorgeous photos (coming to the website soon!).
Vegilicious, Geo’s fabulous crew looking after us and keeping us going with food and coffee. Look out for them at festivals around Victoria, and definitely visit the restaurant in St Kilda if you can – the menu is completely vegan and fantastic!
OMG! The Fashion Parade crew Leonard, Nathan, Fig and Vanessa – and especially all of you who strut their stuff!
