Report on the United States of America

Universal Periodic Review on Sexual Rights, 9th Round (November 2010)

http://lgbthealth.webolutionary.com/sites/default/files/USA%20UPR%20FINAL.pdf

This report is submitted by the National Coalition for LGBT Health,1 the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS),2 and the Sexual Rights Initiative.3 Within the broad context of sexuality and sexual rights in the United States, it deals specifically with issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth and adults.

This report explores the pervasive negative social and legal norms around gender, sex, and sexuality that impact the LGBT population in the United States, where widespread and often state-sanctioned discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity and expression regularly prevents LGBT people from accessing health care, education, relationship recognition, and other civil rights and benefits. Of special concern in this report are the deeply-entrenched obstructions to health care access for disadvantaged groups like the LGBT population; the health disparities associated with discrimination and a lack of access to health care, particularly the disparities affecting LGBT people who also belong to other minority groups; a lack of comprehensive and LGBT-inclusive sexuality education for youth; and the disproportionate impact of HIV/AIDS on LGBT people, particularly gay and bisexual men and transgender women of color. The report also briefly considers the lack of LGBT cultural competency in the social safety net, prison, and immigration systems, as well as the police persecution of transgender people and out-of-home LGBT youth who engage in transactional sex in order to survive. Each section of the report concludes with specific recommendations for the U.S. government.
