Having safe sex inside prison… is a lot more complicated than you might think. This was what members of a queer prisoner support group in Montreal discovered… when they tried to create a program advocating safe sex on the inside. Liam Michaud-O’Grady and Julia De Montigny offer a workshop called “You Improvise To Survive”.

This is a description of the workshop: A workshop / discussion featuring statements from gay, queer and trans prisoners across the US and Canada on what sexual “safety” means when condom access is restricted or when queer sex is criminal. The workshop and discussion seeks to start dialogue about how we can support one another, and each others’ struggles for control over our own sexual lives, as trans folks and gays and queers across prison walls.
