Last weekend I was on the panel Chewing the Cyberfat: Body Weight, Size, and Sex Online with Hanne Blank and Chloe Angyal at Momentum,. This is a fantastic conference in DC and a gathering of the very top people in feminism and sexuality. Then due to a last-minute cancellation, the organizers offered me a slot to preview a portion of How to Lose Your Virginity. Needless to say, I was thrilled and a bit terrified, and the response was amazing.
Here's what one young woman had to say:
"I attended the Momentum Conference this past weekend, and saw the screening of the How To Lose Your Virginity preview, and I just really want to say that you're awesome. As someone who has dealt first-hand with the virginity movement and its damaging effects, I was fascinated and so, so thankful that there are people fighting against this awfulness. From what I saw, the film really hit home in so many ways."
One of the stars of our film, Hanne Blank, was there doing Q&A with me, and I unleashed my inner fangirl chatting with former Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who is also in the film. She was on fire at the conference! You can watch her on a panel with Lara Riscol and Esther Perel.
Just a reminder: We're getting amazing feedback for our work-in-progress, but it won't get finished without your support. Please consider backing the project on Kickstarter. Thanks!
