Featured Speaker: Darrel Ray, “Your SocioSexual Orientation and Its Impact on Relationships”
Community Moment: Merna Solomon
Musical Guest: TBA
Just as we tend to have different social styles, like extroversion or introversion, we also have different sexual styles. These are rooted in personality that is influenced strongly by genetics and culture. Understanding and coming to grips with your SocioSexual Orientation can save a lot of heartache in relationships.
