Whether you’re questioning your sexual identity or if you’re out as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender person, it’s always important to protect your sexual health.

Safe sex

Lots of LGBT teens feel pressure to have opposite-sex partners. Remember, it's your body and who you choose to have sex with (or not) is up to you. If you do have opposite-sex partners remember to talk about birth control options before you have sex. Learn more about preventing STDs and unplanned pregnancies.
