Sexual Health Education ProjectLatex Wars 1 & 2
Latex Wars is project produced in conjunction with the PA Department of Health, using Television and Music as an Ally in Educating our Youth about Sexual Health. We’ve found a non-traditional way to reach our youth. We used a popular song entitled “Lip Gloss” by Lil Mama, to catch the attention of the youth and to promote the importance of using condoms. We also introduced informative facts about sexual health. Performed by Keith “from up da block” who delivers his brand of comedy, hip-hop parodies. Keith “fromupda block” has been wowing audiences both onstage and on television for over ten years on Urban X-pressions.
