Web Design by Curious Crow Creatives
The I Hear You web series is a non-conforming, feminist medical drama that follows the lives of a group of women – cis, trans, femme, non-binary, young, old, able-bodied, disabled – who each struggle with sexual health issues. From postpartum depression to chronic pelvic pain and painful sex, to seniors with STDs, we are cracking open the taboo around women’s sexual health and the medical crises that women are silently facing on the front-lines of primary care.
