Sex education for LGBTQ youth tends to be very limited, both in formal and informal spaces. This workshop will raise awareness of the importance of providing LGBTQ youth with sex education that follows the “triangle approach” of linking sexual health, sexual rights, and sexual pleasure, which was formulated by the Global Advisory Board for Sexual Health and Wellbeing (GAB). The workshop will also provide the opportunity to learn about specific online LGBTQ sex education resources.
