Q Series: The Criminalization of Queer People
Horizons’ Q Series are free public events featuring leaders of the LGBTQ movement in dialogue about our movement, our culture, and what it means to be LGBTQ. The Q Series offers excellent opportunities to learn about the work being done by Horizons’ grantee partners and to meet and connect with others.

Although we have seen many advancements and changes in laws to decriminalize queer people, many LGBTQ people still face discrimination in the criminal justice system. Who is being criminalized today, why is this still happening, and how do we rebuild queer lives affected by the criminal justice system?
