It happens before the narrative begins but it's referred to frequently.

It begins with a fairly disturbing surgery scene, but it isn't very explicit.

Not explicit.

It's never described explicitly, but the implication is that rapes occur all the time and have happened to many of the characters.

An uncle has strong sexual attraction to his nephew though seems not to act on it in the present. It is mentioned that this uncle may have sexually abused his nephew in the past but the nephew cannot remember.

The main character is on the autism spectrum and treated as inferior due to this fact.

Many, maybe most of the characters are intersex and/or lgbt in some way.

Gender is quite complex in this book, so this is done often but not purposefully.

Most of the characters and their communities are what would be described as black or of African descent so nearly any death is a black character.

Not hate speech specifically but clear language meant to harm a queer couple.
