Woodhull Names Recipients of 2016 Vicki Sexual Freedom Award

ALEXANDRIA, VA—The Woodhull Freedom Foundation has announced the recipients of the 2016 Vicki Sexual Freedom Award, to be awarded at Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit. Named after Victoria Woodhull, this year the Alliance honors Megan Andelloux, Kenyon Farrow, Dr. Scout, and Carol Leigh. “It has been my honor to have worked with, and been inspired by, each of the 2016 Vicki Sexual Freedom Award recipients,” said Ricci Levy, President and CEO of The Woodhull Freedom Foundation. “They’ve dedicated their lives to advancing sexual freedom, and to securing a future where our human rights are fully embodied in our lives.” Established in 2010, The Vicki recognizes those individuals whose life and work embody the mission and values of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, and who have made landmark contributions to the sexual freedom movement through education, advocacy, research, sexual health and activism. This year, the recipients are: Megan Andelloux, whose award will be presented by Sandra Daugherty (Sex Nerd Sandra), is the founder and executive director of The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (CSPH). Her innovative education programs, writing, social media presence, and ambitious speaking schedule helped make her one of America’s most recognized and sought-after experts in the growing field of sexual pleasure, health, and politics.

Whether serving on a board, staff member, or rank-and-file organizer, Kenyon has spent the last 15 years working in social movements on campaigns and projects large and small, community-based, national and global in scope. Issues of criminalization and mass imprisonment have been central to his work, and he is probably best known for his work organizing for racial and economic justice issues in the LGBT community.

He has won recognition for his work from the U.S. House of Representatives, two state governments, and many city governments. In 2014, he was named one of the Out100 by The Advocate magazine, and received a Rockefeller Foundation writing fellowship on transgender health. Prior to that, he was named the CDC Health Equity Champion and National Youth Pride Services Advocate of the Year. For more information on Dr. Scout, click here. Carol Leigh AKA Scarlot Harlot has been working as a sex worker/prostitute activist and artist in the Bay Area for more than thirty years. Since the late seventies, she has written and performed political satire as “Scarlot Harlot,” and produced work in a variety of genres on women’s issues including work based on her experience in San Francisco massage parlors. Leigh is one of the “mothers” of the sex workers’ rights movement in the US and internationally. In fact, she coined the term “sex work” in the late seventies. For more information on Ms. Leigh, click here. The Summit will host a Vicki Sexual Freedom Award Recipients Roundtable on Saturday, August 6, hosted by 2013 Vicki recipient Carmen Vasquez. Then, after an afternoon of workshops, all Summit attendees are invited to a reception with the 2016 recipients, along with board members Nina Hartley, Buck Angel, Hardy Haberman, Richard Moore, Metis Black, Ted Bernhardt, David Mandell, Carmen Vasquez, and Ricci Levy. The evening will culminate with the “Liberty, Libations and Libido” awards ceremony and gala, where Carol Leigh, Dr. Scout, and Kenyon Farrow will receive their awards. The celebrations continue through brunch on Sunday, where Megan Andelloux will receive her award. Held August 4–7 at the Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia, Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit is the one conference focused on sexual freedom as a fundamental human right in the US. Now in its seventh year, the focus of the Summit is the goal of the sexual freedom movement: global recognition of our fundamental human right to sexual freedom. The Summit is for everyone interested in sexual freedom—from activists, educators, students, attorneys, and clinicians, to people who are simply curious about how to make the world a freer place for all.   Proposals for this year’s Summit must be submitted by 5 p.m. EST today, February 16.
