Sex education is a fun topic, isn't it? It can be uncomfortable at times, but what better way to make it less of a unwanted discussion than to add humor to the mix. This may be aimed at a crowd that didn't grow up with the Golden Girls like many of older boys did, but we know their friendships, laughter, and appeal are timeless.
Impulse United is a volunteer group of active gay men in collaboration with AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) whose purpose is to promote healthier lifestyles using modern social approaches. This Federation of groups accomplishes this vision through breaking social barriers in communities with such need.
In the summer of 2009, HIV rates were climbing among gay men. Jose Ramos and a group friends sat in his kitchen in Los Angeles, CA and wondered, “Why?” With so much information out there, why weren’t people listening, reading, learning, understanding? So they came up with a solution. Instead of preaching to people, they wanted to have a conversation with them. Jose presented the idea to AIDS Healthcare Foundation and Impulse was born!
Impulse is comprised of volunteers who tirelessly dedicate themselves to the cause of sexual health education, advocacy, and breaking stigma for gay men, both positive and negative. With support from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, this group of volunteers works to create campaigns, events, and online content to reach a new generation of gay men who live in a modern and rapidly evolving world.
In 2013, Impulse opened a second chapter in Mexico City. Since then they have rapidly expanded to include eleven U.S. branches including South Florida, Atlanta, New York City, San Diego, Dallas, Washington DC, Orlando, and San Francisco. International branches include Mexico City, Guadalajara, Phnom Penh, Bangkok, New Delhi, and Beijing. – impulsegrp.org
If sex is fun, why can't sex education be fun, too!
