BUTCHVoices 2017 Friday Sessions #1

Broadway Room — Conversations That Matter

Let’s face it, there are people and topics that at some point are just off limits. You just can’t do it or them right now. Even worse, often it is a difficult topic that you have to bring up with a difficult person. What if you could engage in these conversations with more confidence, humor, and ease? No matter the person or topic, you are your best tool for conversations that matter.
Jessica Pettitt pulls together her stand up comedy years with 15+ years of diversity trainings in a wide range of organizations to serve groups to move from abstract fears to actionable habits.

Telegraph Room — Butch Heroes

A presentation on the research and process involved in the creation of the painting series Butch Heroes. An ongoing series in which I am trying to recover our shared queer history.
