SOY H.E.A.T. (Human Rights. Equity. Access. Team) have developed some new videos to help address key issues that LGBTQ2S youth experience. These 3 educational videos cover the topics of pronoun usage, intersectionality and allyship, and are presented in a conversation format between youth, tweens, and children. The project demonstrates the power and knowledge that young people have, and that they are themselves teachers (especially to each other)!
This project aims to challenge adults who often complicate explanations unnecessarily or avoid conversations about real life issues with young people. We can handle them. Trust us.
Definitely share these around with your family and friends!
If you have questions about this topic, feel free to contact one of our peer educators. [Link]

A lot of the time “unprotected sex” usually means when people don’t use condoms and/or any birth control methods. That’s typically how people learn to use it, either in school or media. But really, it depends on what kind of things you’re trying to protect yourself from.
We like to use the term Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) here at Teen Health Source, not Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD). Did you notice? Do you ever wonder why? Well, we’re happy to tell you!
