We all have sexual rights.
Sexual rights must be guaranteed to all of us.
Sexual rights are the rights to our bodies, gender, gender expression, who we love and relate to, and sexual pleasure.
We have a right not to be discriminated against because of our bodies, appearances, ages, nationalities, races, disabilities or diseases, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or who we love. These rights must be guaranteed everywhere, including where we work and study, in hospitals, social welfare institutions, and public places.
It must be possible for us to obtain the necessary information and to be educated without prejudice or stigma. Information and education that we need must be provided in ways that are readily comprehensible to us. Information and education must not be one-sidedly blocked from us for the reason that we cannot understand them or that we must and need not know them.
Explanations must not be made to people other than yourself, and must not let others decide. In addition, for equal and safe sexual relations and pleasure, we must be guaranteed both time and space guaranteeing privacy and necessary resources.
Sexual rights are indispensable for all of us to live healthily, safely, and with others! National governments must continue to create laws and policies and to provide necessary facilities and resources so that all people may enjoy such rights. Let’s all remember and demand together!
These things must be guaranteed for sexual rights.
