This episode’s ATX celebrity discussion panel on “Self-Care and Sexual Health” Panel led by Dr. Uchenna “UC” Ossai, creator of the adult sex ed course, “Woke is the New Sexy,” Dr. UC is assistant professor at the University of Texas Dell Medical School and Pelvic Health Program Manager at UT Health Austin, and spends her days treating people with both sexual and pelvic floor dysfunction, and her evenings educating the masses on everything that has to do with “sexytime.” When it comes to sexual intelligence and great sex education, UC embraces always being unapologetically real, happily crunk, and deliciously kind.
Joining Dr. UC on the panel discussion will be “Queer Kid Stuff” series creator and founder, Lindsay ‘Lindz’ Amer, plus Sensual Embodiment Specialist, Member of the American Dance Therapy Association, and former dancer for Beyoncè, Lily Shepard, plus musical guests, Gina Chavez, Tameca Jones and NNEDI of Trouble in the Streets.
We know talking about sensitive topics can make us feel silly, so we just plan to go with the flow and keep the laughs coming throughout the show with a comedic stand-up performance by Austin’s own Sam Noorani, as seen on Laugh Exchange Live, That Time of the Month, and The Coven.
The GRA Rock-A-Rama closes with a fun game of musical trivia, ranging from cool and useful GRA swag (like facemasks, mugs, T-Shirts and socks) to a life-sized chicken purse or a virtual cheese tasting from Austin vegan deli and wine shop, Rebel Cheese. One lucky winner will lay claim to the grand prize: a first-run opening day viewing of Wonder Woman 1984 on a 15ft screen right in their own yard at sunset on Christmas Day, provided by Austin’s own, Catalina Drive-In.
