Exploring Vulnerabilities of BME LGBTQ Community to Human Trafficking

September 8, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Community experts will explore the intersection and vulnerabilities of BME LGBTQ Community to modern slavery and human trafficking.

Over the years there has been increasing challenges in the narratives of Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) people who might have experienced human trafficking on the grounds of their perceived sexual orientation and gender identity. We believe to some extent that these could also include some level of labour and financial exploitation. There is so much hidden and untold stories of LGBTQ folks trafficked and or are victims of modern day slavery. The acute shame of being LGBTQ makes this a victimless crime as many people don’t come forward.
