Now that we’re all stuck at home, we’ve moved Real Talk Pizza Parties online. You can join from your very own computer using Zoom. You’ll need a computer/smartphone/tablet, headphones, and (ideally) a private place to watch.
We will send out the Zoom link to anyone who has registered on Eventbrite.
At this event, we’ll watch some Real Talk videos, and participate in a conversation facilitated by a certified sexual health educator.
Please note – if you want a family member, friend, or staff member to support you to tune in to the Pizza Party, that’s great. They don’t need to register, they can just show up with you.
Question 1: Umm… How do I join this Virtual Pizza Party?
At 2:00PM on Wednesday, May 13th, click the Zoom Meeting link we emailed to you. This will prompt you to download the Zoom application if you haven’t already, and when the meeting is live you can join it.
BE SURE TO BRING EARPHONES!
This will ensure our conversations will be heard by only you.
Question 2: Okay… so what happens at a Virtual Pizza Party?
As people join the virtual event, they are welcomed by the facilitators. While we wait for everyone to arrive, there are some activities to get people thinking about the subjects we’ll be discussing.
Once everyone has arrived, the facilitators lead some brief introductions. Then we begin screening video episodes from the Real Talk video catalog. After each episode, we check in with everyone about whether the things discussed in the videos are interesting or relevant to them. We invite discussion, reflection, and questions.
Since this is a virtual event, we can’t all eat pizza together like we usually do! But we will be sure to take a break part way through so you can stretch, leave the space where you’re watching from, grab something to eat, or chat to others.
Our goal with each event is to provide an encouraging, inclusive and comfortable space for folks to honestly share about love, dating, sex and relationships. What are people’s experiences? Hopes? Dreams? Frustrations? Disappointments?
