Imagining the Future of LGBTQ Human Rights

Henry F. Hall Building, Concordia University : 7th Floor, H-763-767, 1455 de Maisonneuve St. W , H3G 1M8

Across the globe, we stand at a critical juncture in the history of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) human rights. The continuing struggle for LGBTQ human rights is evident from controversy surrounding the Sochi 2014 Olympics in Russia, to the laws in a number of countries that criminalize the lives of LGBTQ people. But while there have been struggles and setbacks, there have also been extraordinary accomplishments, such as the introduction of same-sex marriage in several countries. We are witnessing a watershed moment in the history of global LGBTQ human rights.
