Healthy Teen Network Tip Sheet: Gender, Sexuality, & Inclusive Sex Education

Assuming someone’s gender identity or sexual orientation based on how they look, assuming that all young people are only attracted to the “opposite” gender, teaching that there are only opposite genders (boys and girls, and ignoring others). These are all examples where sex education may make youth of different identities, genders, or orientations not feel included. Inclusive sex education means a change both in thinking and in language for these identities and experiences.  Click here to view the Healthy Teen Network Tip Sheet: Gender, Sexuality, & Inclusive Sex Education.

This is Reteaching Gender and Sexuality

Reteaching Gender & Sexuality is a message about queer youth action and resilience. The video was generated to contribute additional queer/trans youth voices to the national conversations about queer/trans youth lives. Reteaching Gender & Sexuality intends to steer the conversation beyond the symptom of bullying, to consider systemic issues and deeper beliefs about gender and sexuality that impact queer youth.
