A new online workshop from national sex education organization Answer focuses on making schools more inclusive and increasing awareness of LGBTQ issues. Called LGBTQ Issues in Schools, the workshop provides strategies, resources, and interactive exercises for health professionals and teachers working with middle school and high school students. It also highlights the importance of acknowledging LGBTQ youth in life education and health classes. And it provides specific suggestions for incorporating LGBTQ issues into sex education.
