The D.C. Department of Health is partnering with the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design to spread the word about a new sexual health campaign launching on June 28, 2018. The campaign centers on the idea that “Sex is a natural part of being”. That being includes: Being+ confident, Being+ empowered, Being+ brave or Being+ bold, among others. The art competition is meant to illustrate the essence of a sexual being and further the discussion about sexual health in D.C. The aim of this event is to help normalize the sexual health conversation and break down barriers to the discussion of sexual health, in all aspects. Admission is free and will include light bites and a cash bar.
