Writing Themselves in 3

wti3Writing themselves in 3:  The third national study on the sexual health and wellbeing of same sex attracted and gender questioning young people

This is the third of the Writing Themselves In national reports which have been conducted six years apart since 1998. In 2010, a total of 3134 same sex attracted and gender questioning (SSAGQ) young people participated in Writing Themselves In 3 (WTi3), almost double the number in 2004 and more than four times that of 1998. The participants, who were aged between 14 and 21 years, came from all states and territories of Australia, from remote (2%), rural (18%) and urban (67%) areas and from a range of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. There were more young women (57%) than young men (41%) and a smaller group (3%) who were gender questioning (GQ).

For school educators and sexuality teachers, you may find chapter 12 Sexuality education and school experience especially insightful.
