Secularize Sex Education: LGBT Youth

"Currently, sex-education standards vary widely across the country, leaving many American youth uninformed about basic anatomy, healthy relationship skills, and safer sex practices.

On top of this, LGBT youth face particular challenges. Sex-education materials often assume students are heterosexual and nontransgender.

Many sex-education curricula do not mention sexual orientation or gender identity at all, and some that do discuss it only in a negative light.

All youth deserve education that empowers them to make healthy, informed decisions about their relationships and their bodies." (Slater, 2013).

This bill was originally reintroduced to congress by the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) in 2013, Bill S.372 - Real Education for Healthy Youth Act of 2013, but nothing has happened since then, we started this petition to reintroduce the original bill to congress that has been sitting there with no action and request that something be done about it.
