Sexuality is a confusing and often avoided topic. It is generally relegated to being a ‘private’ matter, and therefore not openly discussed or engaged with, even within close circles and small communities.

Sexuality is a confusing and often avoided topic. It is generally relegated to being a ‘private’ matter, and therefore not openly discussed or engaged with, even within close circles and small communities. Due to the taboo of discussing sexuality, many people struggle individually, often turning to religion for guidance or, more concretely, moral pronouncements.

In a worldwide survey of over 1,200 self identified Sikhs, SikhRI has explored the current day sentiments towards sexuality in Sikhi as well as uses a Gurmat perspective to reflect on Sikhi and sexuality.
