Scarleteen, Doing 'Queer Sex Ed For All' since 1998
The State of Texas for Trans Youth and Families (And How You Can Cope or Help)
I’ve written a piece like this three times now.
Our Work After Dobbs
Queer Media for Pride Month and Beyond
One of the trends that gives me hope for the future is seeing more and more queer media on shelves and screens. It's heartening that, even in the face of alarming and depressing times, queer and trans people still manage to make art and tell stories.
Queer Futures: Siân
I want to talk about joy. About feeling sweatily, vibrantly alive and connected and lifted up by community.
I want to talk about dancing. Specifically partnered dancing, where two people dance together. Dancing is where I find sanctuary, where I celebrate the good days and find my way through the bad ones.
For me, dancing is a way of living the future I want be a part of.

Scarleteen Confidential: Ten Questions with Scott Todnem about Puberty, Masculinity, and Raising Boys
We encourage parents and guardians to have honest, supportive conversations with young people about sex and relationships. Because we know that can sometimes be intimidating, we're always on the lookout for resources to help with the trickier parts of those interactions, which is why we were excited to read the recently released Sex Education for Boys: A Parent's Guide: Practical Advice on Puberty, Sex, and Relationships by Scott Todnem. Scott chatted with us about how the book came to be, how to model positive masculinity, and the different challenges that come with raising boys.
Supports for Trans Youth and Their Families (and a few words for everybody else)
It's been less than a year since I wrote a blog post like this.
Being Seen, Cared for and Empowered AF by Feminist AF
Through all my phases of self discovery and learning to be a feminist as a teenager and young adult, I never had someone tell me it's okay to be loud and rowdy, to be gender non-conforming, to rock my natural frizzy curls and be openly sexual--especially as a WOC. I would've learned these things way earlier in life if I had Feminist AF in my hands.
Thank you! We did it!
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! Just under the clock, exactly 150 donors, and about twice that many other helpers, got us across the finish line and past our minimum goal of $10,000 for our Halloween annual fundraiser.
