But as the web producer for Sex, Etc., you would get to help teens from all the over the world understand their sexual health questions and concerns. Sex Etc is THE most comprehensive site on sex ed for teens online - it gets more than 60,000 unique visits per day from teens all over the world, sharing their stories, questions and concerns. And the Network has put in motion a dynamic plan to change its image and dramatically increase those numbers – with a newly launched magazine and two-week cross country tour and a newly designed website and logo by next year.

If you have web producing skills, I really encourage you to apply. I would love to see someone of color and/or with an alternative sexuality bring their sass and energy to the Network in the position. This is chance to truly bring creativity and innovation to your job.

The staff is dynamic, open-minded, young and really committed to making a difference. When the site re-launches next year, it plans to be working with the most functional and cutting-edge technology.

SAN FRAN MUSEUM LOOKING FOR
STORIES TO TELL: Project seeks to archive
‘first voice’ narratives about people of African
descent.

*In Africa it is said that when a griot, or
oral historian, dies, "a library has burned to
the ground." In recognition of the fabled
tradition of the griot and in an effort to
document stories of the African Diaspora,
San Francisco's Museum of the African
Diaspora (MoAD) has embarked on a
landmark project.
I've Known Rivers: The MoAD Story
Project is an unprecedented effort by an
international museum to collect, publish,
and archive "first voice" narratives about
people of African descent. MoAD has
issued a global Call for Stories in an effort
to collect, publish and archive authentic
stories from throughout the African Diaspora.
Stories should be submitted in the form
of first-person essay, short fiction, and poem
by published and unpublished writers as
well as authentic voices from across the
African Diaspora. Additionally, the stories
must be related to MoAD's four founding
themes: origin, movement, adaptation, and
transformation. Stories should be submitted
no later than November 1, 2005.
In light of the recent devastation caused
by Hurricane Katrina and its effect on the
lives of thousands of African Americans,
this project's story-collecting mission takes
on an even greater significance.
For submission guidelines and to learn
how you can write yourself into history,

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED
ART SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR KATRINA SURVIVORS. - The School of Art at Louisiana State University at Woodbury, through the offices of NASAD The National Association of Schools of Art and Design, an organization that accredits art and design programs, has issued a call for art supplies to help the children and artists affected by Hurricane Katrina.

The supplies will go to children and adults now living in shelters throughout the Baton Rouge area. The supplies will hopefully serve as a morale booster for children attending the now over crowded and under funded schools in the area in addition to allowing local artists the means to rebuild their careers in the wake of losing their life’s work.
All donations can be sent directly to the School of Art office at the address below.
