Dr Carolina Are - aka Blogger On The Pole - Navigating Pole Dancing Online

Saturday 6th November 

Seminar Room 

12pm - 1pm

Dr. Carolina Are – aka Blogger On Pole – was a blogger and social media strategist before she was a pole dancer. When she started taking pole classes and blogging about it, initially her following grew – but then the problems started. Navigating posting naked pictures while retraining as an academic and working in PR was initially challenging – and that was even before the shadowban became a thing! In this seminar, she will share her experience of navigating pole dancing, nakedness and censorship, spilling the tea on what she found out while researching on, speaking with and being censored by Instagram and TikTok. Through this seminar, Carolina hopes to help you navigate being a pole dancer online whether you’re a hobbyist, an instructor, a performer, or a business. It will share techniques to navigate your online presence, from family judgement to unfair platform moderation. You will leave with tips and techniques to fight censorship alone and as an industry, and to navigate presenting who you are (with all your #sundaybumdays) to the world.

Going way beyond pronoun etiquette, this seminar will set you up with a solid knowledge base on what makes the pole industry a hostile space for transgender people - from toxic positivity to cis-centred language - and what you can do to work towards change. This seminar is suitable for pole event organisers, instructors, studio owners and those who want to be.
