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.
