ABOUT [SSEX BBOX]
The project began in 2011 from a series of educational web-documentaries that that explore themes ofsexuality to promote social changes based on human rights.
To enlarge, broaden and deepen the conversation, [SSEX BBOX] developed into other formats such as: film exhibitions followed by debate sessions, publications, podcasts and workshops.

[SSEX BBOX] CONFERENCES
“The realization of meetings with the participation, protagonism, and visibility of the academic, political and artistic work of the LGBTQIA+ population, including the agenda of children and teenagers’ sexual rights, is absolutely urgent to touch society, to produce and disseminate knowledge and to strengthen the groups and movements that act on the sexuality and gender fields. Thus, public policies are strengthened on the perspective of a more just, equitable and accessible society for all.”Silvio Manoug Kaloustian
