Many of us "get" consent: yes means yes, no means no. But what if the reality is more complicated than that? When our culture lacks a shared vocabulary for active consent, we are left lost in the space between definitions spelled out in black-and-white. Gray Area asks the difficult questions about where our ideas about consent come from, how they get enacted in our lives, and what happens when our reality doesn’t live up to our ideals. How do we navigate these murky waters, and--when something goes wrong--how do we, and our communities, heal?
