Program D

Program D was developed based on evaluations of the Program H and M manuals, which demonstrated effectiveness in transforming harmful norms around gender and sexuality among young men and women, and highlighted sexual diversity as an area for further programming.

The Program D toolkit promotes respect for sexual diversity by inviting youth to reflect on questions and prejudices related to homosexuality. The primary education tool – an animated, no-words short film – is readily applicable to various cultural contexts; it may be used as part of group education in schools and is generally combined with youth-led activism to end homophobia and promote respect for diversity and sexual rights.
