A SIECUS annotated bibliography: Culturally Competent Sexuality Education Resources.

Educators, service providers, health professionals, and individuals worldwide are working to provide people with corn prehensive sexuality education to help them become sexually healthy adults as well as to help them practice safer sexual behaviors, delay the onset of sexual intercourse, and reduce both unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease rates.

As they develop these programs, these individuals must target their messages to people of different cultures, races, socioeconomic backgrounds, ages, genders, and sexual orientations. This bibliography includes resources that reflect the diverse cultures and backgrounds of such groups as Latinos; African Americans; Asians and Pacific Islanders; Native Americans; gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people; and others.
