"20 Condoms" is the first video in Sex Ed: the Saga, a video series created by Asian youth in Oakland to get young people, caregivers, teachers, and mentors to start conversations on topics like healthy decision-making, sexual orientation, gender identity, and acceptance. The Sex Ed: the Saga video series is created by and for youth and is a way for young people to lead conversations that adults tend to have about us, without us.

8 DAYS LEFT to help us reach our goal. support us by donating at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sex-ed-the-saga

by and for oakland youth who are getting real about the shitty sex ed in our schools.

Did you ever have to watch a gym teacher put a condom on a banana? Do you wish young people have a better way to get the information they need to make smart decisions about sex? Well here is something YOU can do about it!

We are Asian youth from Oakland, CA and we are making a series of fun, creative and sexy videos to get young people talking about sex. We need YOU to help reach our goal of $5,000 to finish making these videos, which educate, inform and start conversations about:

  • Sex
  • Using protectiion
  • Preventing STIs (sexually transmitted infections)
  • Partner communication
  • Gender identity and sexual orientation
  • LGBTQ-inclusive sex ed
  • Self acceptance
  • Family communication

We know it’s hard for young people to get accurate information about sex. And we usually don’t get to decide what kind of sex ed gets taught to us. So we’re taking matters into our own hands and making our voices heard. Sex Ed: the Saga is BY YOUTH, FOR YOUTH, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before! We use music, dancing, animation, and funny pop culture references to start conversations on topics that no one else is talking about.

Making these videos and getting them out into the world takes a lot: green screen time, props, animation of sex ed balls (you gotta see it!), awesome locations and distrubution costs. We can’t do it without you!

Seeking Bay Area queer, trans, and POC actors

I’ve just been accepted to the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project’s Filmmaker training program and am getting ready to start pre-production for my third film! This short film is about a cis woman coming to terms with the news that her trans boyfriend is going to start taking hormones. Though initially she does not handle the news very well, she ultimately realizes that her love for her partner vastly outweighs her fear of what the future holds.

I will be shooting the film in the Bay Area in from mid-to-late March. Auditions will be in early March. I am looking for actors in their 20s who are queer, trans, and/or of color to fill the following roles:

Naima is a mixed-race woman with naturally big, curly hair. She loves Theo and tries to support him the best she can, but when Theo tells her he’s going to start taking hormones, she panics. She is fearful of the prejudice he will face, and how it may shape their life together.

Theo is pre-op/non-op trans guy (any race). He loves his partner, Naima, and when he “comes out” about starting hormones, he’s surprised by how upset she gets and begins to worry that transitioning might test the strength of their relationship.

Ray can be of any gender or race. Ray is the best friend that calls Naima out on her selfishness, which helps Naima see she was in the wrong and make amends with Theo.

I’ll be shooting the film in Oakland in the spring. If you’re interested or have questions, please hit me up at NMKCasting@gmail.com. Please share!

11am Rally
Amphitheater of Oscar Grant Plaza (formerly Frank Ogawa Plaza)
14th and Broadway, Downtown Oakland

12 noon March 
Through Downtown & around the north side of Lake

We live in a world where unemployment and staggering levels of debt are the new normal, where poverty and homelessness are met by police violence and incarceration. The entire global economy is broken, and politicians in the US and elsewhere remain powerless to do anything about it. It’s time to take power into our own hands, to occupy the spaces from which we have been excluded and reclaim everything that has been stolen from us.

Come down and show support for your fellow 99%!

The Stone Wolf is gone. She ran away this afternoon and is nowhere in the neighborhood. It’s unlikely for her not to return home. If you see her or hear anything, please call Gloria (510)672-9776 or Ben (510)228-9781. We will ask no questions, offer a large reward, we’ll just do anything to get her back. She is the best friend of my life. Please help me stop sobbing. Pass this along. She did not have her collar on, she answers to Meisha. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE….

This absolute DARLING of a dog disappeared this afternoon from the 5th Avenue Marina neighborhood of Oakland. She belongs to one of my dearest friends and it would mean the world to me if any Bay Area folks would spread the word to try and help find her.

She is the absolute epitome of sweetness and light, and that should mean something coming from my chronically embittered ass. She’s never gone missing before and her family is absolutely devastated.

She answers to Meisha (MEE-sha) and has the sweetest disposition of any dog I’ve ever met. Please help us get our friend back.
