CUTV sat down with FAF event coordinator Nora Rohman to chat about sex ed, The Sense Project, Glamourpussy, and how to stay warm with the queers.
Annnnd recent mentions in The Mirror
and Michael Musto's blog, a famous gossip columnist for The Village Voice gave us some props!
FAF: is an awesome faggitylicious dance party that benefits Head & Hands' peer-based sex education program: The Sense Project.
A suggested $10 donation goes directly to peer education manual printing, wooden penises (in all shapes & sizes), Health Animation in classrooms, Youth-led media projects on sexuality and so much more.
At Faggity we dance to make sex education a priority in Montreal high schools and communities, since it's been phased out of the curriculum in 2005 with the Education Reform. Boo!
Come pay us a visit: shake our hands and shake your booty.

Faggity Ass Fridays: GLAMOUR PUSS(Y)
Head & Hands’ Faggity dance party to support queer-positive sex ed.
Don’t you wish your Valentines Day was spent at a queer Cabaret? It’s not too late to get some February Faggity love! Join us at The Playhouse on February 20th for a night of old Hollywood glamour with a good dose of faggity ass style! Faggity Ass Fridays is proud to present “A Series of Uncoventional Love Stories”, a cabaret performance curated by Kaitlyn Prest and Kelly Escofery that will pull on your heart strings with tales of passion, cyborg love, first kisses and polyamourous sock puppets. Montréal’s best queer dance party to follow.
As always, money raised from this monthly event goes directly to the Sense Project, Head & Hands’ inclusive, holistic sex education program. At a time when STI rates are on the rise, homophobia and transphobia are ever-present, and Montreal youth still do not have access to a comprehensive sex ed curriculum in high school, supporting the Sense Project is as important as ever.
