How you approach the subject of LGBT sex education facts depends on how old your kids are and how diverse their, and your, social circle is. Rather than stressing the sex part, it’s probably easier on everyone to stress the love and equality aspects. When kids are younger it’s best to keep things simple and stress that it’s about everyone being free to love who they want to regardless of race or gender. As they get older you can talk about bullying and acceptance. Use examples like the Mormon mom whose 13-year-old son recently came out to her, forcing her to re-examine her faith and the church she grew up in. If you need a little guidance, the Human Rights Campaign has tons of fact sheets and videos to help parents and educators prepare to answer kids’ questions. As a parent, you know best what amount of detail you are comfortable with explaining about LGBT sex education facts and what your kids can handle.
