We believe that every human being deserves access to medically accurate and inclusive information about sex and sexuality. Many abstinence-only-until-marriage programs censor vital information and are not inclusive of information pertaining to LGB and non-gender-conforming people.

We advocate for comprehensive, medically accurate and responsible education about sex and sexuality for young people and adults.
