By the end of this lesson, participants will be able to:
1. Identify at least two safer sex methods that can be used, regardless of the person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
2. Apply safer sex knowledge to advise others on how to navigate safer sex situations.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) persons are frequently left to their own devices when learning how to navigate safer sex, and are in particular need of inclusive sexuality education. Framed within a risk-reduction model, this lesson plan focuses on the types of safer sex protection needed for various sex acts, rather than the identities of the people performing them, and provides LGBTQI-specific examples to affirm related experiences. This lesson is intended as a starting point for safer sex education that is inclusive of people who are LGBTQI.
