Sex Ed: What Wasn’t Covered

November 14, 2013 @ 7:30 pm – November 16, 2013 @ 9:30 pm
Purple Masque Theatre

‘Sex Ed. What Wasn’t Covered’ – focuses on the two three-letter words often not heard in high school sexual education settings: GAY SEX.

The play revolves around non-heterosexuals, above the age of 18, from varying states around the U.S., who have been anonymously interviewed regarding their sexual education experience and how they became educated in their current safe-sex knowledge. Highlighted, are specific stories regarding these instances, capturing feelings that arise when discussing their own sexual experiences. The transcriptions of the interviews, copied verbatim, were formulated into a play. The goal is to raise awareness between heterosexual safe-sex practices and non-heterosexual safe sex practices within the school sexual education systems.

Through the interviewing process, I found that as a community, individuals were firmly and solidly educated on the safe sex practices regarding heterosexual intimacy, but it was not until early, and even late, adulthood that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and/or Questioning individuals are educated in the matter of safe same-sex practices. This production will shine light on the need for such education within schools.

The production dates will be November 14th, 15th, and 16th with a REMOUNT on Sunday, December 1st (World AIDS DAY). All performances take place in the Purple Masque Theater (East Stadium 103) at 7:30pm.

This is a FREE event! I ask that you spread the word to your colleagues and friends about attending. Although the event is free, donations will be collected and the proceeds will be going to AIDS Research.

A “talk-back” (where the audience has a chance to meet the cast/crew and ask questions) will be following each performance. A guest speaker will also be present each evening during the talk-back. They will provide their own perspective and/or stories as well as opinions revolving around the performance.
