With absent or inadequate sex education in school curricula, Lebanese youth are pushed to learn about sex from unreliable sources, with all the risks it entails. The issue is all the more alarming when it comes to the country’s LGBTIQ+ community, whose members face a multitude of struggles and misconceptions pertaining to their sexual health. To promote LGBTIQ+ individuals’ right to equitable access to healthcare, and to shed light on the importance of taking care of their sexual health, the Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health (LebMASH) organized an LGBT Health Week from March 12-17.
