Fact or Friction? Community Stories of Sex Education

Following our #WhenIWas12 campaign last week, we noticed the wide variety of stories and topics people wish they knew about when they were younger. This got us thinking – what did people learn about? Talking to youth everyday about sexual health really gets us thinking – what will they remember in 5 years, 10 years, or even 20 years?

We want to hear from you!

As part of our education services at SHORE Centre, we are hosting “Fact or Friction: Community Stories of Sex Education” to showcase the importance of early, inclusive, and continuous sex education. Share your best, worst or your most memorable experience with sex education.

For this event we will be collecting and sharing people’s memorable sex education stories. These stories can be about any sexual health topic including (but definitely not limited to):

  • relationships
  • dating
  • gender identity
  • sexual orientation
  • birth control
  • safer sex
  • menstruation
  • puberty… the list goes on!

Whether you learned in school, from friends or family, through the media or any other outlet, we are interested in hearing your story and how the experience has shaped and influenced you. If you would like to share your story live, you will have the opportunity to do so at a community event in April. If you do not wish to share your story live, you can still submit it, and we will post it on our blog and social media pages.

Stories are submitted through this form.

Must be 18 years of age or older to submit a story.

Deadline for submissions is March 14, 2017.
