“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 Parenthood (UHPP).

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.
