Posted by: Andrew on: July 13, 2018

UPDATE: Thanks so much to all of the amazing customers and citizens who stopped by to check out the displays, chat about curricula, and buy some of these great resources. It’s thanks to you that we were able to donate just over $600 to LGBT Youthline, an important organization that year-round supports queer and trans youth across Ontario.

If you’d like to learn more about LGBT Youthline, or if you’d like to make a donation yourself, please follow the link here.

Thank you!

Like you, at Little Island Comics we are shocked and angry about the rollback of the updated Sex & Health curriculum here in Ontario. Queer and trans folks, the internet, science…these are things that aren’t going away, no matter who’s in power at Queen’s Park. We believe that the best way for young people to access current, inclusive information about sex, gender, sexuality, and health is through our public schools.

But while there are still gaps between what you learn at school and what you need to know, Little Island is here for you! We’ve got lots of comics about bodies, health, and sex, for all ages.

This July, come into the Little Island Comics and The Beguiling to browse our displays of THINGS THEY WON’T TEACH YOU IN SCHOOL…. We’ll be donating 25% of all sales from these books this month to LGBT Youthline, a great organization that provides confidential, non-judgemental, and informed LGBTTQQ2SI peer support across Ontario – something that is ever more important!

And don’t forget that MPPs work for us! You can find out who your MPP is here, and email them to tell them all about why we need current, inclusive sex & health education in Ontario!
