About “The Last Men on Earth”


“The Last Men On Earth” takes place in 2126, in a future where cisgender boys and men have begun to menstruate due to the dwindling human population caused by climate change, disease and dangerous governments. “The Last Men On Earth” is a coming of age story set in Queens, NY and follows the life of a newly menstruating seventeen-year-old Salvadoran-American boy named Benicio “Beni” Torres.


The event is free, open to the public, and conducted via ZOOM.
