Myths About Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity Undermine Rights: Human Rights Watch

The 65-page report, “‘My Teacher Said I Had a Disease’: Barriers to the Right to Education for LGBT Youth in Vietnam,” documents how LGBT youth in Vietnam face stigma and discrimination at home and at school over myths such as the false belief that same-sex attraction is a diagnosable, treatable, and curable mental health condition.

According to Human Rights Watch report many experience verbal harassment and bullying, which in some cases leads to physical violence.

The government of Vietnam should fulfill its pledges to protect the rights of LGBT people~Human Rights Watch
