Coming to your college campus (spring tour dates!)

Since 2009, I’ve been traveling around, visiting different colleges around the US and Canada, and teaching workshops about sexualities, genders, relationships, and kink. Generally I do this in the spring and fall semesters, so I have the summer and a few months in the winter to work on other things, revamp my classes, and send out even more pitch letters saying, “Hey! Bring me to your school! :)”

I’ll be traveling again this spring to a variety of places! I’d love to come visit YOUR college campus, too. Here’s some info about how to bring me, if you’re interested, and where I’m already planning to be this spring.

  • February 24 – Los Angeles, CA
  • February 25-27 – San Diego, CA

More details of these events TBA!

If you are near any of these places, I might be able to add on a day or two to stop and do a workshop with YOU (that often means costs are cheaper since I can do ’em in bulk).

This is what a workshop with me is (kinda) like

My most popular workshop is Fucking with Gender, which I’ve done for more than 5 years now and continues to be asked for at colleges all over the US. It’s kinda edgy, and full of genderqueerness and trans things and frank talk about sex and power and the intersectional issues of fighting the kyriarchy. Download the PDF of all the descriptions of my workshops here.

More details about my workshops over here on the workshops page at my portfolio site. Get in touch with Shelly from OUTmedia, who is helping me to organize these travels, at [email protected] if you want to ask more questions or see if I’m a good fit to come chat with you.

    Do you plan to spend any time in Boston while you’re out this way for the 5-College Conference?

    1. Sinclair Sexsmith says:

      I don’t have any plans in Boston right at the moment, but I am always looking to add more gigs and stops on the travels/tours, so it’s possible! I’ll see if I can get a gig or a reading while I’m there. I’m also available for individual sessions in person if you want to book something 1-1.

    Sent your booker-person an email about the possibility of visiting UCSC in March. I am not affiliated with any particular org but can def connect y’all with the people who are. Yay! (Hopefully.)

    Hello. Do you know yet which day and what time you will present at the Five College Conference? I can’t find you on the schedule. Thanks.

    1. Sinclair Sexsmith says:

      Hey! Thanks for asking … I think unfortunately that is going to fall through, last I heard from them they were scrambling to bring me in. I am still hopeful but it doesn’t look good. I’m bummed—I haven’t been out there in a while and I love that area!

      Hopefully another time.
