SPILL: Sex Positive, Intersectional,

and LGBTQ+ Life

Purpose of SPILL 

SPILL is a non-judgmental space for people who do not fall into the category of cis/het/vanilla/monogamous. We discuss issues around gender, sexuality, family and relationship structures, work, school, and society. This is also a place for people whose sexual and gender identities intersect with their race, disability, or socioeconomic status, and who would like to share how their particular experiences have influenced their lives.

Rhiannon, SPILL Facilitator (She/Her) & Jack the dog

Hi There! I’m Rhiannon (she/her) and I am a queer trauma-focused grad student working on my degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have been an intern at a community outpatient practice for a year now and will be graduating from Cambridge College in September '22. I currently live just outside of Boston with my husband, Jack the dog (pictured above), and Lyda the cat.

 

I identify as part of the following SPILL communities:

  • LGBTQ+

  • Polyamorous

  • Kinky

  • Living with Mental and Chronic Illness

 

I also recognize my privilege as cis, straight-passing, able-bodied, and white. I take a firm anti-racist and pro-equity stance, and try to weave that into my education and work. 

 

My goal here is to make sure that everyone feels seen, heard, and welcomed, and that their experiences have value. Group and community support is one of the most important factors in overcoming adversity and trauma, and I know from personal experience that having even just a few people on your side who really get it can make all the difference. It is my hope that the connections made here will continue to serve you throughout the rest of your lives.
