Going Over the Rainbow, with Jax Sugars & Ryan Garcia
Going Over the Rainbow looks at human sexuality through an LGBTQ lens, focusing on the different aspects that make a person who they are and how they relate to other people, particularly with sexual and romantic relationships. Knowing the intersectionality of what contributes to a person’s sexuality is important in being able to give inclusive information when providing sexual education. This workshop will be educating on LGBTQ inclusivity and how to include LGBTQ youth in the conversation.
