THE LAHLITA PROJECT
The Lahlita Project is a queer-led, sex-positive space for you to question all you thought you knew (and all you’d like to know) about sexuality, gender, intimacy, relating, bodies and more!
We’re here to say goodbye to cisnormative, heteronormative, sexist ideas about our bodies, our pleasure and our relationships
And say FK YES to informed consent, healthy boundaries, bodily autonomy and freedom to love whomever we wish, however we wish, as long as it’s done with consent and communication.
We believe in sexual liberation for all beings!!
Through workshops, discussion and peer-led learning we place sexuality into the limelight, encouraging people to find honest enjoyment and understanding through their relationship with themselves and those around them.
In our online space Lahlita’s Room you can ask questions, share your experiences and access intersectional resources that will help you to develop a healthier and more informed relationship to yourself, friends, lovers, others & the world around you.
You can join our thriving online community here.
We are living in a time where sex is largely seen as taboo, something we are taught to be ashamed of or hide away. Due to a lack of education in these areas, many of us have a confusing or disassociated relationship with our sexuality.
We think it is time to step away from the feelings of confusion that have surrounded our sexuality for eras and into a place where our sexuality is informed, natural and normalised.
We believe that you have all the information you need inside of you and it just takes asking the right questions and a non-judgemental listening ear (or ears) to bring this wisdom into your life.
The project began in 2018 as a direct response to the lack of spaces for younger people, especially people from a range of diverse backgrounds (queer folk, people of colour, trans beings, neurodivergent people & people with disabilities), to come together to learn about sexuality and intimacy together in a welcoming environment.
Although the work we do is aimed at people aged 18-35, events are open to everyone and are not gender-specified. We actively work together as a team and as a community to make this space as accessible and inclusive as possible, consistently reviewing and exploring ways that systemic inequality can affect our sexuality and relationships and allowing that to inform the work that we do.
At present, we have a small team of facilitators who host each session or workshop and ensure the project runs smoothly behind the scenes. If you have an idea for an event that you would like to discuss, we would love to hear from you. The Lahlita Project welcome professionals and non-professionals alike to be a be a part of this growing community.
The job of our facilitators is to provide a warm a welcoming space for individuals to do their own personal learning without any pressure to ‘have the right answer’.
