Creating an Inclusive Sexual Health Education for Transgender Youth in Maryland Public High Schools
Thursday, June 11, 2020/12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

LGBTQ+ high-school students are excluded from most sexual health education curricula in the United States. Not only is sexual health education very heteronormative, but lacking gender-inclusive language in the classroom is detrimental to the health of transgender youth. This can result in transgender youth being at a higher risk of having unprotected sex leading to unintended pregnancies, STI’s, and HIV/AIDS. The webinar focuses on sexual health education in Maryland public high schools and how educators can work on developing a more inclusive curriculum that accommodates the transgender experience. The webinar specifically discusses puberty blockers and hormone replacement therapy, gender dysphoria, birth control and other methods of contraception, STI and HIV prevention, sexual pleasure, consent, and healthy relationship building.  Presented by NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland Fund policy research intern, Alexandra Siebenhaar.
