An Evening with Mr Angel – Buck Angel returns to Max Black

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Buck Angel, the world’s most famous trans pioneer, returns to Max Black this November for a very special evening of conversation and inspiration with a screening of the award-winning documentary Mr Angel.

The documentary Mr Angel, directed by Dan Hunt was shot over six years and chronicles Buck’s extraordinary life – he has survived addiction, homelessness, suicide and relentless opposition to his gender expression. Still, he lives his truth without compromise or apology.

This feature length film explores Buck’s moving story with a goal to understand the complexities of someone who overcame incredible obstacles, then shamelessly sought the spotlight and its backlash, to share his message of empowerment. An inspirational story of rare perseverance and an unlikely hero. The film has screened at Rio International, Frameline, Indianapolis International, London LGBT, Brooklyn International, and Tokyo LGBT Film festivals… among others. It just reecently won BEST DOCUMENTARY in Seattle. This will be one of the very first screenings of the film in Australia.

Buck has lead the way for all of us to find self-acceptance in powerful and personal ways. His message of self-acceptance goes beyond gender, sex and genitals: it is a universal concept of knowing, becoming, and loving yourself.

On the night:

  • Champagne Reception
  • Screening of Mr Angel
  • Open Q&A session with the audience
  • Buck will be available for autographs and a limited line of Buck Angel merchandise will be available on the night

Let Buck Angel be your guide to re-defining the concept of gender, enjoying the fluidity of sexuality and our individual expression of identity.

One night only. Tickets are strictly limited. Do not miss this very special event.

FOR MEN: New Workshop from Jacqueline Hellyer

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Get The Sex Education You Never Had

Our resident sex expert Jacqueline Hellyer is running a workshop JUST FOR GUYS!

Let’s face it, you never did get very good sex education, you’ve had to figure it out yourself, but how well have you done? You want to be the best lover you possibly can be –  a blackbelt in the bedroom.

I’ve actually got a blackbelt, so I like the analogy. And the martial arts are surprisingly like sex, in terms of feeling and flowing with the energy of your partner.

Think of this as the sex education you never had.

We’ll be looking at sex from a scientific point of view as well as an energetic point of view, using Taoist and Tantric concepts which are really applicable to sex in the modern world.

You’ll learn to embody the four ‘C’s of the true Blackbelt in the Bedroom: connected, confident, creative and in control.

Experiential activities develop:

  • Breath, Presence & mindfulness
  • Lasting longer
  • Circulating sexual energy
  • Sensory awareness
  • Sexual creativity
  • Holding the space
