⭐ Deja Cabrera, Community Health Educator, The San Diego LGBT Community Center
⭐ Beto Soto, San Diego photographer and portrait artist


???????????????? ???????????? ???????????? ????????????????????????
✅ Interactive photography and art analysis with our panelists
✅ Insights into San Diego’s burgeoning sex-positive scene
✅ Never before seen photography from local artist
✅ New data on San Diego’s STI/HIV landscape amid the COVID-19 pandemic


???????????? ???????? ????????????????????????????
Historically, LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities have been negatively stereotyped by commercial media, particularly when it comes to sexual health. This results in less people getting tested for STIs and HIV during a time when rates are rising dramatically. During COVID-19, San Diego sexual health clinics saw decreased STI and HIV testing numbers during shelter-in-place orders, but medical experts say positive cases of infection could exceed 2019 levels as pandemic restrictions are now lifted.

This virtual event will be livestreamed on MOPA’s YouTube Page.
