Petition Make LGBT+ Sex Ed. Compulsory In Secondary Schools.
Secondary schools often completely gloss over or fail to teach LGBT+ sexual education, leaving these students to feel isolated, unaccepted and unprepared. This can have a bad effect on both the mental and physical health of LGBT+ teens.
Just one in six LGBT+ young people have been taught about healthy same-sex relationships, and they are at a higher risk for substance abuse, STDs, bullying, anxiety and depression. Trans teens aren't properly taught on how to bind safety, leaving them at risk of permanent injury.
