Sexual Behavior and Risk Factors of Trans & Queer Youth

The support and affirmation of trans gender-diverse students have increased substantially in the past decade. Nevertheless, risk factors for trans and queer youth continue to be significantly higher than those of their non-LGBTQ peers. This workshop will review data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey and studies on youth in out-of-home circumstances that provide an insight into how trans and queer youth are affected and what potential risky sexual behavior they are engaging in, like sexting, online hook-up sites, survivor sex, and participation in commercial sex.
