Consentrik presents: Reclaiming Expression

At this month’s Consentrik, host Cat Jones and panelists Shann Wallace, Jaden Fields, & Sevyn discuss personal expression and the many facets of how that is executed. The presence of masculinity & femininity in the same body conjures up beautiful expressions of gender, and we should all be excited to witness it for ourselves and others. It’s important to carve out space to unpack these choices, and what they mean for us in our day to day lives.

This space centers the experience and works of Black Trans and Non Binary masculine individuals. Consentrik acknowledges the spectrum of masculinity and honors and invites all that identify along the spectrum of gender and gender expression. If you do not identify as a Trans/ Non Binary masculine individual, you are also welcome. However, please take note of the space you are entering.

We are a collective house of MOC (masculine center) individuals and allies whose sole objective is to learn, grow, participate in happiness and support each other.
