Sexuality and disability in China

  • There is no mention of sexuality in the more than 50 laws, policies and regulations relating to disabled people in China.
  • A lack of legal framework and ongoing stigma attached to disability means that disabled people lack sexual autonomy and some may even face criminal prosecution for consensual sex with another disabled person.

Education policies in Brazil

  • Research indicates that many trans young people, and poor trans youth in particular, drop out of education or under perform due to bullying and violence in Brazilian schools.
  • Religious moral conservatism has played a big part in the failure of the 2004 'Brazil without Homophobia' programme to achieve its objectives of combating discrimination and supporting sexual diversity in the education system.
