Call for Proposals


The CFP for the 6th annual AltSex NYC Conference (which will be held on Friday, May 14, 2021) is now open!    

Please note that this year’s theme is Sexuality and Creativity. Our goal as always is to provide an open forum to explore topics on the far reaches of sexuality. We are open-minded and open to suggestion on all new, intriguing, and thought-provoking presentations on alternative sexualities, but this year we would especially like to hear proposals on ways in which sexuality can be used to allow us to tap into our creative selves, and imaginatively explore ourselves and our relationship to others.

Be creative! Topics can be relevant to the current moment, for example: how sexuality helps us cope in the time of covid; future thinking, such as the intersection of sexuality and technology; or timeless, such as the interplay of sexuality and psychedelics.

We request that speakers frame their presentations in an accessible manner, and format clinical information and/or research results in a way that can readily be distributed and consumed by lay audience and media. Selected speakers will receive free entry to the conference. 

If you would like to speak at the 6th annual AltSex NYC Conference, please fill out and submit the form below by November 1, 2020.
