LGBTQ Youth; Walking the Talk of Inclusive Sexual Health Education @ Airport Honolulu Hotel
Jan 31 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

Youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer are at disproportionate risk for multiple negative health outcomes including earlier onset of sexual behavior, increased number of sexual partners and decreased use of effective risk reduction strategies when compared to their heterosexual peers. Youth-serving professionals often struggle to understand the latest terminology, the nuances in LGBTQ youth culture and the most effective ways to be responsive and inclusive of the needs of sexual minority youth. This presentation will help health and education professionals understand the latest language, sexual health trends and effective strategies to better meet the needs of LGBTQ youth.
