The New Woman Behind the Camera is at the Met Fifth Avenue, New York until 3 October 2021, and at the NGA, Washington, from 31 October 2021 to 30 January 2022.

The Portrayal of Sexual Health in Photography

Join our interactive virtual discussion on the portrayal of sexual health in commercial media โ€“ just in time for San Diego Pride Month. Panelists include: Kevin Linde of Museum of Photographic Arts, Deja Cabrera of Be The Generation at The San Diego LGBT Community Center, Dr. Gabriel Wagner of UC San Diego Health, and Beto Soto of The AjA Project.

The Portrayal of Sexual Health in Photography

Historically, LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities have been negatively stereotyped by commercial media, particularly when it comes to sexual health.

This results in less people getting tested for STIs and HIV during a time when rates are rising dramatically.

During COVID-19, San Diego sexual health clinics saw decreased STI and HIV testing numbers during shelter-in-place orders, but medical experts say positive cases of infection could exceed 2019 levels as pandemic restrictions are now lifted.

โฐ TOMORROW (7/8) at noon: Join a special virtual discussion on the portrayal of sexual health in commercial media.

In her series "First American Girls," for example, Cara reimagines a world where Indigenous beauty is celebrated and its diversity is acknowledged. She creates these life size, tribally specific doll boxes in collaboration with her friends and family.
