In the context of education, more than a third of learners have experienced violence. An online survey shows that 28% of young people are not out in an education setting (mainly students). Furthermore, the term gay is still being used as an insult on a regular basis.
Both the Grundsatzerlass Sexualpädagogik and poster campaign by the LGBTQI teachers’ organisation Ausgesprochen, which aimed at increasing the visibility of LGBTQI issues in schools, faced major public opposition – particularly from conservative, right-wing / catholic organisations and parents’ associations.
This peer education project offers specific workshops on topics like sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, variations in sex characteristics, and queer perspectives.
