Sex Positivity: An Exploration of Sex and Sexuality

LGBTQA hosts a great discussion about sex. But not the usual telling you not to ever have sex, but a sex positive talk emphasizing the right for you to choose what you like as long as you are doing it with consent. It emphasizes personal choice and an end to shaming/judging others for their personal choices. Come have some fun learn and share with us!

GYT

Chlamydia is the most common STI. There are often no symptoms, and if left untreated, it can cause infertility. But hey, good news: testing is super easy with a urine sample, and Chlamydia is curable with antibiotics. Stop by, pee in a cup, and get tested for Chlamydia with or without your valentine. As a bonus, you’ll get tested for Gonorrhea for free as well! Results are confidential and discreet. Free t-shirts!
