Here is what we believe:

-sex and sexuality are related to hope and vitality and should be celebrated and talked about without shame;

-it’s not all about the sex, but sex is important;

-trust and communication and authenticity are the Most Important Things;

-knowing how to make meaningful relationships is not instinctual or inherited, but takes work;

-just because a relationship ends doesn’t mean it was a failure;

-how we are with each other is significant on both a personal and political scale;

-queering is beautiful, valuable, and necessary (challenge the status quo, but don’t rule it out!);

-relationships are strongest when they are crafted and defined by the people in them;

-YOU SHOULD TALK TO EACH OTHER ABOUT THINGS (We know on the Internet all-caps is shouting. We are shouting this.) This is vital even (especially!) when it’s hard or fraught or complicated!

-that above all, there is no one right way to be, other than considered and considerate.

We’re looking forward to talking to you about stuff. Let’s all decide to be smart about this and keep making one another smarter.
