Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.)(2021)

Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.) is a time-travel ride through the evolution of sexes. It celebrates our diverse gender identities and sexualities.

Packed with humour and DIY tech, Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.) is a playful new take on sex education. It’s an eye-opening experience for teenagers, and everyone who missed out on the sex education they should have been given at school!

After its Edinburgh Festival Fringe run, it is planned for S.E.X. to go into secondary schools in Scotland and beyond as in 2018, Scotland became the first country in the world that made LGBTQ+ inclusive education embedded within the curriculum. As well as looking at gender and sexuality within the piece, S.E.X. provides an opportunity for young people to meet LGBTQ+ artists.
