Diversity in Human SexualityJune 2015, 99 pages

The Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) has published this report examining scientific evidence on sexual practices. The report shows that human sexual behaviour is naturally varied, and should not form a basis for discrimination. It further presents substantial evidence that sexual diversity has always been a normal part of human society. 

The report concludes that tolerance of same-sex orientation benefits communities and positively affects public health, civil society and long-term economic growth.

The report could encourage policymakers, faith leaders and communities to learn about LGBTI people that live in their countries and help inform policies and lawmaking. Efforts should be focused on countering the stigmatisation that creates hostile and violent environments for those who are othered within heteronormative societies.
