SNAP – Supporting Newcomer Access Project Sexual Health Activity Book




This sexual health activity book was created as part of the Supporting Newcomer Access Project (SNAP) at Planned Parenthood Toronto. The ideas and images for this book were created and made by SNAP volunteers during our 2015-2016 cycle of the program. We wanted learning about sex and relationships to be fun, simple and accessible, and so came up with the idea for a sexual health activity book.

Queering Sex Ed – Resources

Queering Sex Ed was a short term project at Planned Parenthood Toronto. A Youth Advisory Committee of LGBTQ* youth came together to create sex education resources for other LGBTQ* youth that spoke to their needs and experiences. These PDFs are a result of their hard work. Queering Sex Ed videos can be found on PPT’s YouTube channel.
