This briefing will explore issues of policing, safety, profiling, and school discipline policy as they relate to gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (GBTQ) young men and boys of color. How do zero-tolerance policies place queer youth in jeopardy? How is homophobia deployed against all men of color by the police? Which experiences and common concerns are the shared by queer youth and youth of color with regard to surveillance and punishment and which are unique to GBTQ young men and boys of color? How are GBTQ men and boys of color profiled in multiple ways: as men of color, as young men, as homeless people, as sexual outsiders.
This panel of advocates and philanthropic leaders will bring sexual orientation/gender identity (SOGI) and racial justice lenses to bear on these questions; share stories of successful organizing and advocacy strategies and effective philanthropic partnerships for empowerment of GBTQ men and boys of color.
- Challenges and opportunities for grantmaking for improved outcomes among gay, bisexual, and transgender men and boys of color
