WHAT DIDN'T THEY TEACH US:
THE SEX EDUCATION PROJECT
Facilitated by: Kevin Jesuino & Megan Fox
Participants: High School LBTQ2S+ youth & allies
Presented at: Western Canada High School, 2019
For many LGBT2SIA+ youth, the current school system focuses on mainstream heteronormative sexual education, and therefore, many of the youth end up learning from each other; leaving information gaps on things that are specific to LGBT2SIA+ individuals.
A progressive and inclusive sexual education, along with the potential for Gay-Straight Alliances to be banned in certain school boards, was at risk in the provincial Alberta election of 2019. This immersive theatre performance saw LGBT2SIA+ youth & their allies working together to propose the questions and answers that youth really have about sex, gender and orientation — Teens teaching adults sex education.
