We’ve changed this to an all-genders, virtual event! It’s our first-ever virtual event and will take place using the Zoom app. All you need to attend is a home computer or smartphone, and earphones!
Question 1: Umm… How do I join this Virtual Pizza Party?
Register for our Eventbrite event. The e-mail address you use to register is where we will send the Zoom Meeting link to join the virtual Pizza Party. If someone else registers for you, make sure they get you this link!
At 9:00AM the morning of the Virtual Pizza Party, March 26th, we will send the Zoom Meeting link to the e-mail address you used to register with Eventbrite. Keep the e-mail handy, the link will go live at 11:30AM.
At 11:30AM, or maybe a few minutes earlier, click the Zoom Meeting link we emailed to you. This will prompt you to download the Zoom application, 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?
