Your Harmony Board of Directors
With the support of generous donors, Harmony is excited to invest in critically important professional adult sexual education courses for our membership and the public.
You are warmly invited to attend this special four-part webinar series. Dr. Jill McDevitt (Ph.D. Human Sexuality, M.Ed. Human Sexuality Education, B.A. Sexuality, Marriage, and Family), a San Diego-based sexologist, will provide our members and the public with meaningful and science-based information concerning human sexuality and gender identity as well as common areas of struggle for the Queer/LGBTQIA2S+ Community such as shame, intimacy, power and agency, pleasure, and more.
This event is free for Harmony members and also available to non-members for a fee to recoup some costs associated with hosting the event.
The series will begin on October 3, 2020, at Noon Central with the initial "Circles of Sexuality" workshop. Topics of the three subsequent workshops will be announced following the initial workshop where feedback will be received and interpreted. In other words, participants will drive the discussion!
