Event description
Everything you ever wanted to know about Buddhist approaches to sexuality, gender identity and relationships—from ancient times to today!

About this Event

Buddhist monk and scholar, Bhante Sujato, takes us on an adventurous romp through the landscape of sexuality and gender-diversity in early Buddhism. Drawing on historical records, Bhante Sujato reveals the astonishingly colourful world of sex, love and relationships at the time of the Buddha. Following the talk, a Q&A panel discusses Buddhist approaches to contemporary issues, including gender fluidity, poly-amorous relationships, dating apps, sex-work and much more!

Join Rainbodhi LGBTQIA+ Buddhist Community for a fascinating evening exploring our spiritual, social and sexual selves.
