Dear ,

Today is the last day for the EROTICS global survey on sexual rights and the internet to be filled up. We will keep it open for additional 3 days for ‘last minute’ responders. Our preliminary findings shows the respondents from Africa are still less represented compare to other regions.

Your input will help us and our partners to map the latest trends concerning the opportunities and threats involved in the sexual rights defenders expressions and organizations online.

Thanks in advance for taking the survey and passing it on to individuals and organisations working on sexual rights issues:

We will share the survey findings with you later in 2017.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Katerina and Valentina


The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) is an international network and non-profit organisation founded in 1990 that wants everyone to have access to a free and open internet to improve lives and create a more just world. | | |

The first EROTICS survey in 2013 and the second in 2014 have deepened our understanding of the ways sexual rights activists use the internet to advance their cause, and the challenges faced by the LGBTQI community in expressing their sexuality online. This knowledge is crucial to assist in the development of strategies to support the work of APC and the EROTICS network, a global network of more than 50 activists, academics and organisations working on sexuality issues. The findings of the past surveys have resulted in, among others, the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression’s May 2015 report on encryption, anonymity and the human rights framework in digital communications . The findings also informed the UN’s first ever resolution on women human rights defenders in November 2013, with a paragraph on online violence against sexual rights activists.
