My body, my rights, our freedom: connecting sexual and reproductive health rights and LGBTIQ movements
There is significant overlap between progress on LGBTIQ rights and wider sexual and reproductive health rights. As highlighted at the Nairobi Summit, sexual and reproductive health rights, including continued action on HIV/AIDS, are a core part of the Sustainable Development Goals, with dedicated action by 2030. Particularly young people can face multiple, intersecting obstacles to sexual and reproductive health information and services related to age as well as disabilities, gender diversity, sexual orientation and ethnicity, among others. This session of the Queer Youth Dialogues will discuss the conclusions of the latest report of the ICPD25 Committee, especially on issues regarding youth and LGBTIQ people. We will also hear from youth speakers who work in the intersection between LGBTIQ and SRHR to learn about challenges and good practices derived from their work on the ground
