We know that public sexual harassment in among individuals in the LGBTQ community is happening in alarming numbers. It is also something that the DC community doesn’t talk about enough.
Check out this article from MetroWeekly, Unpackig the Numbers, Racism, Poverty and the Response to Anti-LGBTQ Hate Crimes in D.C. (Thanks for the tip Patti!)
We love the authors analysis of the problem and agree that an increase in policing is not the solution. We want to challenge all of you to think about how we can implement community-based solutions to end anti-LGBTQ public sexual harassment and violence.
