TALKING ABOUT THE BIRDS AND THE BEES

Miss Kings County 2011 Teams with Let’s Talk About Sex Director for
Screening and Panel Discussion

 

The Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Organization (www.missbrooklyn.org) announced today that Carmen Mendoza, Miss Kings County 2011, will be hosting a pre-screening of James Houston’s groundbreaking documentary “Let’s Talk About Sex,” which premieres on TLC April 9th.

“I’m honored to host a screening of James Houston’s documentary ‘Let’s Talk
About Sex’,” says Miss Kings County. “Its work like this that gets
progressive dialog started with the hopes of providing a proper sex
education for our youth.” 

Let’s Talk About Sex (www.letstalkaboutsexthefilm.com) explores American
attitudes towards adolescent sexuality and how those views impact today’s
teens. Directed by James Houston, the documentary focuses on the
contradictory and often confusing ways society handles the topic of sex with
American youth using revealing interviews, statistics and more to paint a
picture of the difficulties teens face today navigating a highly sexualized
culture.

In line with her platform of “De-stigmatizing Getting Tested,” Mendoza has
teamed with Houston to host this screening event with hopes of getting
people to dispel the social taboo of talking about safe sex and continue to
fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS.

“This film was created to be used as an educational tool by individuals and
organizations alike to spark a much needed conversation around this issue,”
says director, James Houston. “The support of the larger community and
individuals like Carmen is what is needed to ensure this important film is
seen by as many people as possible.”

Let’s Talk About Sex screening will take place on April 5th at Center Stage New York (located at 48 West 21st Street in Manhatttan) beginning at 7pm and will be followed by a panel discussion about topics discussed in the film.
