SAW is Coming!

Sexual Awareness Week (SAW), our highly-anticipated week of diverse, fun, and FREE sexual health events on campus, is back this year from February 15th to 19th! Each year, UTSEC seeks to bring collaborators from the U of T community as well as the greater Toronto community at large together to hold events that educate, raise enthusiasm for, and build community around different aspects of sexual health and sexuality. Events in the past have included workshops on topics as diverse as asexuality, sex toy accessibility, and HIV status disclosure in the workplace, as well as events like anonymous HIV testing.
Applications for SAW are now open. If you’ve got an idea for an event, please download and complete the following form and email it to by no later than 11:59 P.M. on December 15th. Paper versions of the application form are also available in the UTSEC office. We’d love to hear from you!

  1. I would like to join with your evenets. pls send more information about future events.

  2. Hey! It’s so nice to see people have interest our events.
    Volunteer applications are up; even if you’re not interested in doing the in-office counselling and the like, it’d be swell to have another body to help out with events and the like. Fill one out and put that request as a comment or even join the facebook group here to get information as it becomes available.

    Love, SEC.
