There is virtually no record of work on sexuality and rights in South and Southeast Asia, and even less to show how theory can link to practice. This volume fills the gap by demonstrating how the ideas of scholars and activists can be converted into action that can make a difference to people's lives.

The 15 original essays span eight countries and analytically document on-going work in areas such as: sexuality education; sexual health services; sexual rights; transexuality; and HIV/AIDS prevention. They also offer a variety of strategies in advocacy, service delivery, education, training and media outreach activities.
