Teen Workshop: Gender, Sexuality and Media

- Location: Pacific Community Center & Park

Glendale, California 91204
Sandra Abarca of Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley, Inc. will present the topic of Gender, Sexuality, and Media. From the cartoons we watch as kids to the music we listen to, our lives are filled with messages about who we should be and how to act. In this workshop, we will reflect on the different types of messages we receive about sexuality and gender and where those messages come from. More specifically, participants will examine what media teaches us about sexuality and gender, and how these messages might affect how we view sexuality, how we communicate, our relationships, the decisions we make, and our health. Ages 13-17 are welcome.
