Takao will conduct a three-day workshop entitled Touch of the Other, for a group of up to 10 people of any genders and sexualities, and of any discipline and skill level. The workshop, which will conclude with a public presentation on the third day will use the manuscripts of Dr. Laud Humphreys, the US sociologist who researched M2M sex in public toilets during the late 1960s, of who’s data is now collected at the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives in Los Angeles.

Participants will explore the manuscripts and re-enact some scenes of toilet cruising along with personal experiences and fantasies, to examine how human relationships are explored, shared and/or witnessed.
