Gender Spectrum: Gender-Inclusive Health Education
Some resources that are in alignment with Gender Spectrum’s “Principles for Gender-Inclusive Puberty and Health Education,” principles that work to affirm and recognize all students so they can see themselves reflected in their classrooms and learn knowledge and skills associated with healthy behaviors.
Sexuality: WTF Is It, Anyway?
The term "sexuality" can be used a lot like the word "sex." They're both terms we say and hear a lot, but which often aren't clearly defined.

Can You Be Yourself On Dates?
If you’re like me, there are lots of questions that race through your mind when you prepare to go out on a date. Do I look polished enough? Am I going to click with this person?
