Celebrating Sexual Health: Join us on 9/4 in NYC or LIVE Online!

What does sexual health mean to you? What springs first to mind? Something celebratory, I hope! Regardless, I hope you’ll join me and the incredible crew of the the 2nd annual World Sexual Health Day, North American celebration in NYC in-person or online this Thursday, September 4th.

Over 30 countries will be commemorating the holiday, which is an initiative of the World Association for Sexual Health aimed at broadening awareness and positivity surrounding sexual wellness, with a definition that goes far beyond the prevention and treatment of disease. I can’t tell you how stoked I am!

I’ll be hosting the phenomenal NYC event, which promises to be an evening rich with music, performance art, inspiring takeaways and captivating conversation. Having attended last year, I can honestly say it’s one of the most inspiring, thought-provoking events I’ve experienced.

If you’re in the New York area and would like to join us at the historic Cutting Room, you still can! For tickets and more details, visit ConnectionsABC.com.

To enjoy the event from your own living room, RSVP via Facebook here or simply start watching via Gander TV on Thursday, 9/4 at 7pm EST here: World Sexual Health Day LIVE STREAM

But wait. There’s more!
