Abstract

Sexual education is important for adolescent health and development all over the world, especially for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. It should include comprehensive sex education, prevention of early pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STI), and risks of sexual behaviors or sexual violence. Comprehensive sex education is described by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS, 2009) as including age-appropriate sexuality topics, such as human development, relationships, decision-making, abstinence, contraception, and disease prevention (Baams, Dubas, & Van Aken, 2017).
