Celebrate LGBT History Month with a short film premiere and panel discussion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender health complexities. Cycle Series is a collection of short films created to expore a myriad of menstrual experiences from a public health perspective, especially those frequently overlooked.
Often, when we think about menstruation, a certain type of person comes to mind; but as these films reveal, experiences of menstruation and reproductive health are nuanced. This short film explores a transmasculine experience of menstruation from the perspective of Pittsburgh musician Jude Benedict. Jude discusses the intersection of gender identity and reproductive and menstrual health. The goal of this event is to advance discussions of LGBT health and well-being. Panel members include health professionals, diversity and inclusion representatives, and members of the LGBT community.
The Cylce Series screening is one of the highlights of LGBT History Month observances at Pitt Public Health and complements our year-round educational and research programs in these areas.
Thursday, October 24 at 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
