This past year has been a year of intimacy, passion, and growth for sex KiKi. We were lucky enough to have partnered with so many great organizations to bring much needed representation to the community. We even made our debut at the Museum of Contemporary Art, as part of the In Progress series.

We’d like to thank anyone who has ever attended, helped, and cheered us on from afar! You are what keeps us going. Big ups to Stephanie Jensen for being such a dynamic photographer, you capture our events so eloquently, and add vibrancy to the site! Can't leave out Eddie Jerks for the home photo & Cinematic Kickback photography, delightful! With such amazing events behind us, we can’t wait to see what this year brings the sex KiKi community.

If you missed out on sex KiKi in 2017, you’ll have a chance to join us for our 2018 programming. We’ve partnered with IL Humanities F.O.A.M. Program and Brave Space Alliance to create a seminar entitled Dating Beyond the Binary: Fortifying Trans Women. We took a look at how media and pop culture influences our perspectives on dating and the effects it has on our trans sisters.
