“Let’s Talk About Sex” Movie Night
April 12, 2012, was movie night at the Bliss Towers community room,
featuring the award-winning film, “Let’s Talk About Sex,” a look at how
American attitudes toward teen sexuality is causing a crisis among our
youth with unintended pregnancies and STDs. The event was
co-sponsored by Women’s Health Project and Upper Hudson Planned
This free event also enabled participants to pick up free
supplies and parenting information from UHPP. Refreshments and popcorn
were provided, and drawings were held for books on how to talk with
your kids about sex. Participants engaged in a lively discussion
following the movie.
Participants also took part in prize drawings and research interviews which offered a $25 participation payment.
The event was the nineteenth in a series of free health events
offered by the Women’s Health Project, a community-based initiative of
the Center for the Elimination of Minority Health Disparities at the
University at Albany.
