‘How to Hack Birth Control’ is a comedy digital series on how to navigate and take charge in today’s contraception universe. Told through the sharp wit and perky charm of the narrator Ruth, Birth Control takes a run at a hit list of ‘not supposed to talk about,’ scenarios. How do you get the morning after pill quickly and for free? Where can you hide your birth control? How do you get your doctor to listen to you? All of the things women want to know but are taught to be too afraid to ask. Filled with backpack cats, patriotic American eagles, musical numbers and the game show, ‘Let’s Not Make a Baby,’ each memorable contraceptive milestone is a riotous new discovery. Authentically raw and LOL fun, ‘How to Hack Birth Control,’ will make you wonder what else sex-ed never told you.
The City of West Hollywood is like no other city in the world. In 1984, the idea for the City of West Hollywood was proposed by an unlikely coalition of LGBT activists, seniors, and renters. These groups came together to advocate for cityhood.
The City’s advocacy and services priorities are reflected in the City’s core values, which include: respect and support for people; responsiveness to the public; idealism, creativity, and innovation; quality of residential life; promotion of economic development; public safety; and, responsibility for the environment.
The City of West Hollywood is filled with rich history. People from all over the globe visit West Hollywood for its iconic destinations such as The Sunset Strip for its unparalleled historical connection to music, entertainment, architecture, fashion, and culture-making; for Santa Monica Boulevard’s historic LGBT destinations and entertainment establishments; and for the Design District’s shopping, galleries, and restaurants.
