Become a Speakers Bureau Health Educator
Face to Face provides free HIV prevention education to more than 1000 Sonoma County middle and high school students.
Our Speakers Bureau brings a health educator and HIV-positive speaker to meet with students for an unforgettable and informative presentation.
Our health educator covers the basics—teaching students about HIV and how transmission can be prevented. Our HIV-positive speaker connects with students on a personal and emotional level, helping to get a message across in a way that informs, inspires, enlightens, and reduces the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.
Sign up to learn more about becoming a F2F Speakers Bureau Health Educator and/or Positive Speaker. We will be hosting a free training where you will become equipped with the tools to present the content of our free HIV prevention education series to students in Sonoma County middle and high schools.
A special training for school teachers and administrators will take place on Tues., April 4, from 3-4:30 pm in Santa Rosa.
A training for non-educators will take place on Wed., March 29, from 2-4pm in Santa Rosa.
The Speakers’ Bureau is made possible in part to a grant from Sonoma Wine Country Weekend. Face to Face presents the program to students in Santa Rosa with support from the Ernest L. and Ruth W. Finley Foundation.
Face to Face Feature Film
February 3, 2017
Rialto Cinemas Sebastopol
Strike a Pose is a unique documentary that brings together the surviving dancers from Madonna’s Blonde Ambition Tour at the height of her fame in 1990 which was chronicled in the acclaimed documentary Truth Or Dare. But despite having the word Truth in its title there is much that wasn’t discussed in that film because the dancers were not ready to talk about themselves. Now the remaining six have been reunited in this powerful story about truth, love, sexuality, and HIV.
Proceeds from the movie benefit F2F HIV prevention & care services programs.
Visit Rialto Cinemas Sebastopol for more details.

Movie synopsis: Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

Victor/Victoria – Saturday, November 15th @ 2pm
On the verge of starvation in 1930s Paris, erstwhile entertainer Victoria (Julie Andrews) is rescued by gay cabaret performer Toddy (Robert Preston). What she needs to succeed, opines Toddy, is a gimmick. What if she becomes a male impersonator? Better still: what if she becomes a male impersonator, pretending to be a female impersonator? As “Victor/Victoria,” s/he becomes the toast of Paree, and an object of fascination for big-time Chicago gangster King Marchan (James Garner).
