This Resource Spotlight features That Sex Show on AMI-tv which focuses on the intersections of disability, sex, and sexuality more broadly. We’ll discuss the importance of disability-focused and disability-inclusive sexuality education, connections between gender-based violence and disabled sexuality, and best practices for disability inclusion in relation to sexuality education.

This Resource Spotlight will have ASL interpretation and English closed-captioning.

Learning Objectives

In this session, participants will:

  • Gain a preliminary understanding on disability justice politics and its relationship to sexuality and pleasure.
  • Identify gaps in current sexuality education practices and their effects on disability communities.
  • Consider ways to better incorporate a disability focus into current work around sexuality and violence prevention education.
