You’re not advocating properly when you put  LGBTQ+ youth in the backburner.

I didn't know that when I grew up, I'd be advocating for reproductive justice and sexual education reform. I didn't know that I'd become a vocal person about the intersections between race, gender, and sexuality. If you asked me a few years ago, I wouldn't have known I'd become a digital activist.  In fact, I didn't I'd become very aware and disillusioned with the sexual education system. I grew up in the Bronx, a borough of New York City. As many people can safely assume, New York City is pretty liberal as most American cities go. Most of my life, I've gone to public schools, where it was mandatory to teach about HIV/AIDS but not explicitly sexual education. I ended up going to a Catholic, all-girls high school and got a decent sexual education. Instead of getting abstinence-only education, I ended up getting basic information on how to be protected during a sexual encounter and what to do to prevent pregnancy (my high school was also in a neighborhood that had a pretty high teen pregnancy rate, which might explain why they avoided abstinence-only education).
