In the song "Body" by Syd, they swoon to us, saying, "The bed is your stage, take it away, put on a show, put on a play..." How often have you wanted to make your bed, chair, countertop, or just standing in front of the mirror your stage to express your sensual and sexual self? Taking nudes can be a form of sexual liberation and a way to reimagine your relationship to being in the center of your sexual stage performance.

The goals of the Invisible Ink, “It’s the Nudes for Me!” Workshop hosted by Taylor V. Smith of Finding Freedom with Taylor is to provide attendees an affirming space to be in community with other Black Women and Femmes while we:
1. Introduce ways to decolonize our views on sensual and sexual expression
2. Explore your relationship to your body and the camera
3. Learn best practices for taking nudes
*this session centers Black queer, non-binary, trans women, and gender non-conforming folks.
