Safer is Sexy

Safer is S.E.X.Y (Sophisticated Empowered Xtraordinary You) is a social media and outreach campaign that works to mobilize the Greater Boston community and engage non-traditional partners to empower young people to make S.E.X.Y. decisions about their sexual health and relationships.



Centered on Black and Latinx youth and young adults in greater Boston, open to the community.


ABCD’s Safer is S.E.X.Y — Sophisticated Empowered Xtraordinary You — began as a Boston-based social media campaign to prevent HIV/AIDS and substance abuse among Black and Latina women and girls — any and all who identify as female. We have expanded to include wellness along with sexual/reproductive health to explore intersecting issues of racism, sexism, trauma, stress and more on the health and well-being of young people and our community.
