Texas is revising its sex education standards, but they'll likely remain silent on LGBTQ issues

The Republican-dominated State Board of Education is taking up the first revision of sex ed curriculum in more than 20 years. LGBTQ students say they're being excluded again.

Atticus Sandlin, 16, works to provide support and empowerment to LGBTQ youth. He takes part in youth-led sex education at his school and throughout Texas with the Dallas organization Youth First.
Atticus Sandlin owns a variety of pamphlets, stickers, contraception, and various informational resources to provide to anyone who needs them.
