Everyone has a sexuality, regardless of disability, age, gender orientation or culture, and everyone has the right to live out their sexuality safely and openly. Nevertheless, many people with disabilities and chronic illness experience that their sexuality is a non-topic. Studies show, among other things, that many people encounter prejudices and myths about disability, and that this can have consequences for the self-image, and limit the access to information about sexuality. At the same time, it is pointed out that sex with disabilities can work well, and that young people with positive feelings for their own bodies and good knowledge of sexuality often have better mental and physical health.
We are visited by board member in FRI, and former leader of the Norwegian Disability Association’s Youth, Henriette Nilsen, who based on the report “Sex that works” prepared by Young people with disabilities, will talk about young people’s experiences of sexuality and functional ability.
After the lecture, based on NRK’s concept in the TV series “Do not ask about it”, we have invited a panel to answer the questions you do not dare to ask about sexuality and disability.
(Monday) 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Open for everyone.
