People with disabilities are denied equal access to conversations, resources, health care, autonomy, and lived experiences relating to sexuality, sexual health, and relationships. Ableism has allowed sexual health providers, educators, parents, and others to desexualize people with disabilities – especially young people with disabilities, people with disabilities who are also LGBTQ+ or of color.
Real Talk began with a series of dialogues with young people with disabilities about their experiences with sexual health providers. These dialogues culminated in the creation of a guide for sexual and reproductive health providers about inclusion and accommodations when working with this people with all types of disabilities.
Real Talk: Improving Quality of Sexual Health Care for Patients with Disabilities webinar slides are available in both PowerPoint and PDF formats.
