Taking Care of My Sexual and Emotional Health
Names have been changed. I wish you could know who to trust just by looking at them. I was humiliated because the person I thought was my loyal boyfriend was messing around with other girls—and he gave me an STD. When I was 15, I befriended Rob and thought he was the nicest boy I ever met.

Movie Review: Moonlight
by Sedrick Sanchez
Moonlight is about a character I’ve never seen in a movie—a gay thug who is big, bad, and scary, but who expresses his feelings. Instead of a monster, the movie shows a drug dealer as a human being. His name is Chiron, and he lives in a poor part of Miami, Florida.
