Sex, Lies & Citizenship is a 3 – year community-based participatory theatre project focused on improving sexual health knowledge and positive sexuality among self advocates. The research questions guiding this project are:

1) What are self advocates’ experiences of learning about sexual health and sexuality?

2) What information is needed to achieve successful sexual health education and positive sexuality?

3) What impact does participatory theatre have on breaking down barriers and challenging stigma related to sexuality and intellectual disability?

Building on research gathered in an earlier pilot project, Sex, Lies and Citizenship has conducted a series of interviews with self advocates and is currently using community-based participatory methods to co-create, produce and evaluate a participatory theatre project on sexual health, sexuality and intellectual disability.
