dc.description.abstract This research proposes policy changes for sexuality and relationship education in the United States. Whether or not sexuality and relationship education should be included in middle and high school curricula, and what sexuality and relationship education should entail, are both highly contested questions. With the recent progress towards welcoming gay marriage within the U.S., it is important for educators to recognize multiple sexualities and genders as respectable within our society. Only twelve states require that sexual orientation be addressed in sexual education, and of these states, nine require inclusive sexual education while three require exclusively negative information about homosexuality. This research addresses the lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) student body specifically in sexuality and relationship education, pointing out that their needs often overlap considerably with the necessities of heterosexual youth. Policy changes to address these needs include comprehensive sexuality and relationship education including multiple sexualities and gender identities.
