The "Same-sex relationships: Updates to Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education programming," or SUHMRE, project explored specific approaches that could foster inclusion of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) populations in Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) programming. The final report describes data collection and analysis, through which a Framework for LGB Inclusive HMRE Programming was developed and refined. This framework highlights the external context and three domains—program, educator, and curriculum—all of which can influence inclusivity. Within each domain, the report provides potential approaches for inclusion of LGB populations.
