The Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce OutLaws 2020, an eight-part thought leadership webinar series devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice. Our second installment addresses the complex relationship between law enforcement and the LGBTQ2+ community in modern society.
Between 2010 and 2017, Toronto’s Gay Village was the site of one of the worst serial killing sprees in Canadian history. As details of Bruce McArthur’s activities came to light, many in the LGBTQ2+ community expressed outrage over the way law enforcement handled investigations surrounding the events. Divisions between the LGBTQ2+ community and law enforcement deepened when, in 2016, the decision was made not to allow uniformed LGBTQ2+ police service members to march in Toronto’s annual Pride Parade. These events have added fuel to a lengthy history of contention between the two groups. This conversation offers a comprehensive look at how prominent organizations are working to repair community relations and help restore a more cohesive and perfect union.
