Wed 4th October
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Upstairs at The Western
The Sex Ed Show


How do you teach sex education? By writing “I will wear a condom” twenty times? And what about LGBT identities. A spelling test should do it, right? For one night, Upstairs at the Western becomes a classroom, and Jasmine Gardosi the schoolteacher. Take a seat and watch her try, and probably fail, to teach you the world’s hardest subject. Perhaps she’ll learn a thing or two along the way.
