Live Coverage

CatalystCon is a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality. It is about reaching out and stimulating those who attend to create those important conversations in their own communities, changing how we as a society talk and treat sexuality. We want to make it easier for CatalystCon attendees (and those who are unable to attend in person) to continue those conversations online before, during and after the conference by using hashtag #ccon on Twitter and creating separate hashtags for each session, workshop, and keynote. We have rounded up some of the best tweets using these hashtags and curated them on Storify to tell the story of CatalystCon West.
