Event description

Description

Our teens are navigating the world of sex, sexuality, consent and technology pretty much while we, their parents and teachers, catch up. This makes it challenging to support them when things go pear-shaped. As concerned parents of highschool aged childeren we run teenage sex talks with panellists who are experts in the chosen area. Community talks sex: Respectful relationships, gender & diversity will involve panellists who work or do research in fields such as sexuality, respectful relationships, LGBTI representation and disability. The event lasts for 1 hour, we provide a phone number to encourage the audience to text questions for the panel.

We strongly encourage the community to come along and make our schools a better place for all our kids.
