Kaleigh Trace

Kaleigh Trace is a disabled, white femme who talks a lot. For many years Kaleigh travelled North America talking about sex. She led sex education workshops exploring the intersections of disability, desirability, pain and pleasure. Through these speaking engagements Kaleigh aimed to interrupt shameful stories about sexuality. She wrote a book to that effect titled Hot, Wet & Shaking: How I Learned to Talk About Sex. It won the Evelyn Richardson Non-Fiction Award in 2015. These days Kaleigh works as therapist. Here, she again explores the impact of shame and the intersections of desire, pleasure and pain. She still talks a lot.
