The revised Declaration of Sexual Rights is here!

The revised Declaration of Sexual Rights is now available in English and Spanish. It is expanded and its format is consistent with international human rights documents. More translations will follow. You can find all the versions in the Resources section.

The WAS Declaration of Sexual Rights was originally proclaimed at the 13th World Congress of Sexology in Valencia, Spain in 1997 and then, in 1999, a revision was approved in Hong Kong by the WAS General Assembly and then reaffirmed in the WAS Declaration: Sexual Health for the Millenium (2008). This revised declaration was approved by the WAS Advisory Council in March, 2014.
