Have you thought about how you will prepare your children for a healthy relationship?

Do you feel that your children are not getting enough sex education at school? Do they know how to ask about consent? That they have various different options for safe sex? The consequences of STDs/STIs?

Please attend PRIVATE SCHOOL: Class is in Session to learn about the available community resources outside your children schools. To help answer all these questions and teach you a few things along the way.  This is a FREE family-friendly event.

PRIVATE SCHOOL: Class is in Session

Sat, April 7, 2018

2:00 PM – 4:30 PM EDT

Henao Contemporary Center

5601 Edgewater Dr

Orlando, Florida 32810

PRIVATE SCHOOL is dedicated to the sexual education of the community. Our goal is to help fill in the gaps that purely abstinence-based teaching can leave. It’s time to get down and dirty and get the answers you deserve!

We are excited to put a new spin on sexual health education!! Our professors will titillate and stimulate your mind (and other places), developing a safe and open space to learn how to make sex fun and safe.

Classes offered are consent and pleasure, reproductive health, and STI/HIV prevention.

Enroll today and let us help with those gaps (in your sexual knowledge)!!

PRIVATE SCHOOL is a family-friendly event, though some material may be better for those 13 and older.

Beer and wine service available to those 21+ inside the venue!!!

Access to community partners focused on education for our youth and the community!!

03.08.18 Tampa Bay’s Bureau Chief’s Desk

By : Ryan Williams-Jent

I recently learned that I’m a monster. Before I get too far into how, I’d first like to thank readers for choosing me as Tampa Bay’s favorite LGBTQ–friendly writer in Watermark’s annual WAVE Awards. It’s a category I share with some very talented writers, like my Central Florida counterpart and syntax sister, Jeremy Williams. He’ll never let me win again.

It’s my goal as the Tampa Bay bureau chief to represent our community and our allies to the best of my ability, something I couldn’t do without all of you. I’m very proud to be in the position that I’m in, and so grateful that I get to learn so much from the community that we’re here to serve.

It is 2018 and our local and national leaders are looking to youth to rise up and create positive change. The objective of the LGBTQ+ Youth Summit is to provide information on Health, Education, and Empowerment so that every attendee walks away knowing that they belong and have an important voice in the community.

Workshops will include topics such as: LGBTQ+ history, self-care, communicating with family/parents about your LGBTQ+ identity, adulting 101, becoming a civically engaged member of the community, and more!

After an empowering day of workshops, youth are invited to a dinner sponsored by GLSEN and dance featuring a DJ.

Email Youth@MetroTampaBay.org for more information. RSVP by February 9th to reserve your space! https://www.metrotampabay.org/lgbtq-youth-summit/
