A program of the UCLA Art & Global Health Center
Come As You Are is a series of 12 short videos written and performed by the UCLA Sex Squad with the intent of addressing various important sexual health topics. Created with the belief that laughter and honesty are the best weapons against the silence that permeates difficult topics like STDs/STIs, teen pregnancy, LGBTQ issues, waiting for the right moment to have sex, and many other sexual health concerns in general, these short films were created from personal stories and experiences. Used in combination with the arts-based workshops included in the Come As You Are Viewing Guide (coming soon), the videos are meant to supplement sexual health curriculum to help make it more fun, engaging, and memorable for high school students.
