Tough Cookies is a Real Talk event specifically for female-identified folks.

Women with a cognitive disability meet to casually decorate cookies, share stories about their favourite female heroes throughout history, watch some Real Talk videos, and participate in a conversation facilitated by a certified sexual health educator.

Please note – if you want a family member, friend, or staff member to come along and support you at the Tough Cookies event that’s great. They don’t need to register, they can just show up with you.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This event is for people 19 and over. You do not require ID to enter. If you say you’re over 19 we’ll believe you.

What can I bring into the event?

Maybe think of some questions you have about dating, love relationships or sex that you can ask. Or think about some things you’ve learned about this stuff that you could share with others. Or think about some experiences you’ve had that you’d like to discuss. Also think about what you need to help you feel comfortable and relaxed at the event. We’ll ask everyone this before we start on the day.
