Name:Negotiating Public and Legal Spaces: The Emergence of an LGBT Movement in Vietnam


2014, 47 pages

Vietnam’s laws, policies and decrees do not explicitly discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals but their rights are not legally protected and they are socially marginalised. In order to understand how LGBT civil society organisations can affect legal and social change with regard to the laws that regulate sexual norms and unions, this empirical study explores the mobilisation strategies of civil society organisations to hold gay pride events, and collective action to legalise same-sex ceremonies and marriages. The case studies were written in close consultation with Vietnamese LGBT civil society actors and with formally and informally organised groups that are distinct from mass organisations. The interviews are conducted with LGBT activists, national and international policy experts, researchers and development experts.
