A TWO-day expo held at the Penrith Panthers club in Sydney’s far west next week aims to push conversations about disability, sexuality, and relationships into the public light.

The Feel the Vibe expo aims to give people with disability over the age of 18 a supportive environment in which to access information about sexual fulfilment.

“Feel the Vibe is a safe place to raise questions, discuss concerns, generate new ideas and boost confidence,” the event page reads.

“Families, carers, support workers and disability service providers are also welcome.”

The expo, which will be held on March 31 and April 1, will host speakers from organisations like Touching Base, which trains sex workers to see clients with disabilities.

“Of course not everyone with a disability wants to access the services of sex workers, but for those men and women who do Touching Base will be there to share information about our work and answer any questions,” the organisation’s president Saul Isbister said in a statement.

The forum will also feature Steve, a 24 year old trans male with an intellectual disability who will speak about issues faced by LGBTI people with disability.

The second day of the event runs from 6pm to 9pm and features adult product displays, exhibitor stalls, give away bags and entertainment.
