Talking The Talk Healthy Conversations Episode 10: What is LGBTIQA+ and how do I explain it to my kids?

podcast Jun 08, 2020




Humans are diverse and that includes sexuality. 

Humans never have been or never will be simply heterosexual and/or cisgender. 

There is broad diversity of Human Sexuality.  

Within LGBTIQA+ communities there are a wide range of terms and language related to all aspects of  human sexuality i.e. sex, bodies, gender, expression, attraction, orientation, experience…and more.

Young people especially who are LGBTIQA+ are at risk of decreased wellbeing such as mental health because they experience increased rates of discrimination and bullying. 

Adults can best protect our young people by being well educated themselves about the diversity of humans and how to not only respect but celebrate unique individuality.
