Where do the LGBTQ+ people feel the freest? What are the reasons for organising so called gay pride events? Why do „gay bars“ exist and why are there „gay neighbourhoods“? How different is the life of the LGBTQ+ people in the cities as opposed to the countryside? We deal with similar and other questions within the Geography of sexualities.
Some countries recognize their rights while other countries do not. What issues are there with the nonrecoginition of the rights of women, LGBTQ+ people or with the lack of rights recognition over the control of ones own body, or with possibility to form relationships and families?
Why is it only non-heterosexuals who need to experience the coming out? Why do we naturally expect each young adult to grow up into a heterosexul? What specific issues do the LGBTQ+ people have to contend with in the course of their lifetime in the heteronormative society? These and many other questions are dealt with by the LGBTQ psychology.
Why do gays, bisexuals, and other men make up more than 70% of all new HIV infections? What is the effect of the non-heterosexuals or HIV positive stigma on the individualsʼ attitudes to health care? Are gays simply promiscuous or do they find it more difficult to find a permanent partner? These and other questions are investigated within the syndrome approach.
What is the basis of social norms? What is heteronormativity? What is the relationship between the queer and feminist theories? What is intersectionality? What is the difference between gender and sex? Will artificial intelligence distinguish between what is considered female and what male? What exactly is sexuality? Philosophy is the basis of scientific knowledge.
