Youre invited

The Program in Human Sexuality (PHS) at the University of Minnesota Medical School invites you to join us in celebrating 50 years of revolutionizing the sexual and gender health climate with a virtual gala on Thursday, May 20, 2021 at 7pm (Central): Benefit with Friends.  

PHS is an internationally and nationally renowned leader in sexual and gender health. With a rich history of providing necessary education and training to both healthcare and business communities, conducting innovative and meaningful research in such areas as sexual pleasure and relationships, compulsive sexual behavior, and transgender healthcare; leading public advocacy campaigns on the local, state, national, and international stages (most recently in connection with sexual rights,) and providing critically important clinical services to our community; it’s no wonder we have a lot to celebrate on our 50th anniversary. One our supporters recently said:

“As an alumni of the U of MN, and a proud mama bear to a 10 year old transgender son, I know the importance of the work the U of MN is doing to research, educate, and change hearts and minds to help erase fear and drive acceptance and celebration of these wonderful kids.”

Make your PHS 50th Anniversary Benefit with Friends Gala extra memorable by selecting the SUPPORTER registration option. Prior to the event, you will receive a celebration box filled with items to enjoy as you participate in our virtual program on May 20th. The 50th anniversary celebration items in the box include two fancy beverage tumblers, 2-pack coaster set made of high-quality stone, custom PHS fortune cookies and gourmet popcorn. Supplies are limited, so register as a supporter today!
