Shortly before CatalystCon East, we decided to add a new feature to the website to help everyone get to know our speakers a little bit better. Now we're bringing it back for all of the amazing CatalystCon West speakers scheduled to present in Woodland Hills this September. Founder Dee Dennis regards this conference as a “melting pot of sexuality” that will unite sex educators, sexologists, sex workers, writers, activists, and anyone with a passion for creating change. The fundamental principle behind CatalystCon is “knowledge is power, and sharing that knowledge is the first spark in igniting change.” All of the speakers that have been selected for CatalystCon West are catalysts for change in their own way. We gave them each the opportunity to talk to us about that, in their own words... by answering a few questions about what being a catalyst means to them. This season's round of "Speaker Spotlight" posts will officially begin tomorrow, with one of our Opening Keynote panelists Jackie Strano.
