Watch: “20 Condoms” for repro justice

The Oakland-based reproductive justice group Forward Together has released an awesome mini-remix of Macklemore’s hit “Thriftshop.” The great video advocates for safe, protected sex and frequent STI tests without any of the preachiness or scaremongering I remember from my middle school sex ed days/that scene in Mean Girls. Check out the video below (transcript after the jump), and tell us in the comments: what other youth-driven repro justice art should we know about?

I only have protected sex

I got 20 condoms in my pocket

I get tested every single month

It’s a freaking condom
