THANKS EVERYONE, WE JUST SURPASSED $1700!!!
We've still got a long way to go. You can help make Sex Ed: the Saga a reality!
Did you ever have to watch a gym teacher put a condom on a banana? Do you wish young people have a better way to get the information they need to make smart decisions about sex? Well here is something YOU can do about it!
We are Asian youth from Oakland, CA and we are making a series of fun, creative and sexy videos to get young people talking about sex. We need YOU to help reach our goal of $5,000 to finish making these videos, which educate, inform and start conversations about:
- Using protectiion
- Preventing STIs (sexually transmitted infections)
- Partner communication
- Gender identity and sexual orientation
- LGBTQ-inclusive sex ed
- Family communication
We know it's hard for young people to get accurate information about sex. And we usually don't get to decide what kind of sex ed gets taught to us. So we're taking matters into our own hands and making our voices heard. Sex Ed: the Saga is BY YOUTH, FOR YOUTH, and it's like nothing you've ever seen before! We use music, dancing, animation, and funny pop culture references to start conversations on topics that no one else is talking about.
Making these videos and getting them out into the world takes a lot: green screen time, props, animation of sex ed balls (you gotta see it!), awesome locations and distrubution costs. We can't do it without you!
Who We Are
We are Asian youth from Oakland, CA! We are part of Forward Together’s Youth program which has been training Asian youth to be leaders in their communities since 2005. We are 14 to 20 years old. We come from low-income, immigrant, and refugee families, and we are making changeon the issues that are important to us.
We are currently leading a campaign called Sex Ed the City to get better sex education in Oakland schools. Every day at school we deal with relationships, safety, sex, gender and sexuality...but our schools don't give us the information or support we need to navigate these issues. So we're doing something about it!
