Kaleigh Trace – queer, disabled, sex-educator – is touring her memoir Hot, Wet, & Shaking: How I Learned to Talk About Sex (Invisible Publishing, 2014). Hear her chronicle her journey from ignorance to bliss as she shamelessly discusses her sexual exploits, bodily negotiations and attempts at adulthood.

Kaleigh Trace’s work has appeared in The Coast, The Huffington Post, CRIT, GUTS, and on her own blog: The Fucking Facts (thefuckingfacts.com). As a disabled, queer, feminist, sex educator she has spoken at conferences across Canada. From her home base in Halifax, Kaleigh writes about safe and shameless sex of all kinds, for all kinds.

Stacy has performed at Antigonight, the town’s art after dark festival, and is a member of and scriptwriter for The Eldertree Project, a group that shares elders’ stories with the wider community. Stacy has published pieces with CV2 and the ASAP zine. Areas of passion include mental health awareness & wellness, queer liberation, filmmaking, and The X-Files. She lives & works in Antigonish.
