Ohio Student started this petition to Ohio State Senate and

Ohio schools do not have an LGBTQ+ sexual education program requirement. This petition is based mainly in Upper Arlington schools but the goal here is to show Ohio government officials the number of people pushing for inclusive education.

LGBTQ+ students shouldn't have to out themselves to their teachers or parents to be included in standard education. If you are currently questioning or identify as a member and you need resources right now I've linked some down below.

Legal stuff :)

Title IX is a federal law that makes discrimination in schools illegal [In this case LGBTQ+ students are being denied equal education] (You have the right to get the same opportunities to learn and participate in school life as anyone else, no matter your gender, including your gender identity or expression, or your race, nationality, or disability. This includes not being punished because you are transgender or gender non-conforming and being allowed to participate in school activities and events.)
