Annual Guelph Sexuality Conference Ending After 41 Years

Posted on Friday December 04, 2020

For more than 40 years, the annual Guelph Sexuality Conference (GSC) brought topics of sexual health and awareness to the community through thought-provoking sessions, discussions, and lectures. As a face-to-face conference in 2021 is not possible due to COVID-19, the GSC Committee has made the difficult decision to suspend the conference in its current form.

By taking a step back, committee members are hoping to refresh how the conference is presented and look at sustainable opportunities that suit the current social climate.  In the coming weeks, the GSC team will meet with key stakeholders in public health to create a new approach to sexual health education.

Committee members recognize the community support that has surrounded the conference for the past 41 years and would like to thank everyone who made each conference a success. The committee hopes to continue connecting and engaging with those dedicated to learning about sexual health.

When we are able to meet in person, the committee plans to host a farewell celebration.  In the meantime, the sexuality conference community is encouraged to share their memories and farewell messages on the Guelph Sexuality Conference Facebook and Twitter pages.

The GSC committee is looking forward to new opportunities in sexual health education. Stay tuned for the next chapter.
