May the UN|HUSHED News be with You!


We’re so close to the end of the school year! We’re so close to returning to “normal” pre-Covid-19 life (or the good parts of it anyway)! So much change has happened in the last year and some months, and we’re ready to celebrate as we wrap up several projects this month. Our third book in the An Introduction to Sexuality series has been years in the making and we have a free training on it you can sign up for below. For those of you who pre-ordered copies, those are shipping out of Austin on the 14th. The second run of our series Teaching Sex Ed Online wraps this Thursday starting at 4pm CT. The high school drop in sessions are running full steam ahead and we’re excited to be meeting more youth than we would have ever been able to reach in person. You can donate to support those here. Scroll down for more info and all this fun stuff and more!
