What is Converge Con?
Converge Con is a conference that originated with a desire to build sex positive communities, and start a dialogue around sexuality, relationships and activism.
We intend to create an open and safe space for participants of all genders and backgrounds to connect with likeminded folk; a space which will spark conversations and foster the growth of new ideas.
Who organizes Converge Con?
Converge Con is presented by the non-profit, the Vancouver Sex Positive Society. They organize events throughout the year to grow the sex positive community, so join their Facebook page or Mailing List on the Home Page to stay in touch year-round.
Where is it held?
In Vancouver, Canada. This year we are once again in the beautiful SFU Harbour Centre!
When is it?
It will be held April 4 & 5, 2020.

I would love to come, but can’t afford it. Can I still come?
Once again this year, we are offering bursaries to help offset the cost of a ticket. They are open now until February 28, 2020. You can fill out an application form here. Priority is given to IBPOC, LGBTQ+ and people with disabilities.
Who is coming?
We want to bring together all kinds of people - sex educators, sex therapists, bloggers/vloggers, activists, authors, social workers, really anyone who is up for talking about activism and making our world more sex positive.
What about washrooms?
There are gender neutral and accessible washrooms available.
Is this a scent reduced event?
The chemicals used in scented products can make some people sick, especially those with fragrance sensitivities, asthma, allergies and other medical conditions. To help keep the air healthy for everyone, please do not wear perfume, cologne, aftershave and other fragrances.
Please see the Venue page for full accessible information.
Please note this is a scent reduced event. The chemicals in some products can adversely effect some people, please keep the air fragrance free.
