For the past few days, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about what happened between Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s sister, Solange. Quick recap: footage was leaked to TMZ of Solange physically attacking Jay-Z in an elevator, while a bodyguard attempted to hold her back and Beyoncé stood by. The video footage had no sound, so we don’t know what was said between any of them, and (so far) no one involved has come forward with an explanation. In fact, it seems like they’re all doing their best to pretend it didn’t happen.
We got the Southwest to Start Talking!
Last week, our loveisrespect team headed out to New Mexico to host a series of Start Talking events for young people and adults.
Between community resource fairs, adult conference workshops and Start Talking trainings for both young people and adults, all the events helped promote the Start Talking curriculum and how it helps students, parents, educators and beyond.
With five events in four days, we did so much that we can only share the highlights:
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is almost over, but it’s never too late (or too soon!) to talk about sex and healthy relationships. In a healthy relationship, both partners feel comfortable with the level of physical activity, whether that means holding hands, kissing, touching, and/or having intercourse.
One aspect of your life that you always have complete control over is how far you want to take it with your romantic partner, your significant other, your crush or even someone you’re just hooking up with. When it comes to anything physical, you absolutely have a voice and do not have to do anything you don’t want to do.
