Russians with 'sex disorders' barred from driving
January 9 , 2015
Transgender and transsexual people won’t qualify for driving licences in Russia any longer, according to media reports.
Other “mental disorders” that will prevent people from driving, include exhibitionism and fetishism, a move that has been slammed by rights activists and psychiatrists.
According to the government, it is introducing more effective medical controls to check the rise in road accidents.
In recent years, there have been reports of an increase in harassment of sexual minorities in Russia.
