Campus Pride partners with Netflix for Advanced Screening of Season 4 of Sex Education

This past September, Campus Pride partnered with Netflix to bring an advanced screening of the first episode of Season 4 of Sex Education to college and university campuses. The final season of the popular series follows the characters through their first year of college and explores the students’ complicated relationships with sex, self, one another, and faith. Both the University of Maryland, College Park and Rutgers University-New Brunswick were chosen for collaboration with the Netflix advanced screening.



University of Maryland, College Park

At the University of Maryland, College Park, we partnered with the LGBTQ+ Equity Center and the University Health Center to provide the advanced screening of Season 4 of Sex Education and a conversation about health promotion and wellness services at the university.
At the event, staff members provided resources, such as the Safe Love Cart with free condoms and access to free STD testing. Chef Eliza Bowden (she/her), the Executive Sous Chef of UMD Catering, created vulva cupcakes in reference to the character Amiee’s cupcakes.
