Last week, the Nova Scotia government launched a new sexual violence prevention campaign aimed at youth. Check it out at breakthesilencens.ca.
The "Birds and the Bees" campaign features two animated videos, inspired by popular cartoons like The Simpsons and Bojack Horseman, that depict common situations that young people face when navigating issues of sexuality and consent. The first video is live now; another will be released later this year.

Statement by Sexual Health Nova Scotia about the Pictou County revenge porn website

"Revenge porn" is a common term for posting intimate images of a former partner online without their consent. Like all sexual acts that happen without consent, revenge porn is a form of sexual violence.
