Call for Proposals


We are pleased to announce that the CFP for the 4th annual AltSex NYC Conference is now open!  The conference will be held on Friday, May 10, 2019, and we are accepting submissions now through September 15, 2018.  

Please note that this year’s theme is Resilience. We are open to all new, intriguing, and thought-provoking presentations on alternative sexualities, but we would especially like to hear proposals on how alternative sexualities have been experienced as a form of resilience.  Be imaginative—we are open-minded!

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.
