Prison Safe – Protecting and Safeguarding LGBTIQ People in European Prisons
The focus of PrisonSafe project is on one of the most urgent, and most difficult, areas in LGBTIQ advocacy today; the extreme physical, sexual and emotional abuse and brutality that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer and questioning people (LGBTIQ) people experience while imprisoned.
Taking into account the large number of reports relating to the discrimination, humiliation, sexual abuse and rape of LGBTIQ persons in the prison setting, prison authorities need to develop policies and strategies that ensure the maximum possible protection of such groups.
