Forbidden Love (1992)

Film details


During the first half of the century, many disabled people were brought up to believe that they had little hope of forming sexual relationships, getting married or having children. This denial of the sexuality of disabled young people was strongly influenced by eugenics theories that were then widely held by doctors and scientists.
