LGBT People on Sex Offender Registries: Results from a National Survey [5/10/22 Webinar]


May 10, 2022
12:30 PM – 1:30 PM Pacific Time, 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM Eastern Time

Sex offense registries have operated in the United States since 1947 but have been challenged since their inception on legal, efficacy, and ethical grounds. Sex offense registries ought to be subject to close examination.

LGBT people are more likely than cisgender straight people to be incarcerated due to sex offenses.

In this webinar, researchers will describe results from a large national survey of people required to register on sex offender registries with particular attention to similarities and differences between LGBT and straight cisgender people and between men and women.

We will describe the population of people on the registry, the type of offenses they were convicted of, the handling of sex offenders in the criminal justice system, and the consequences of registration on the lives and well-being of people on the registry.

They are great researchers and I have been doing LGBT!+ studies for years with them.
Glad they’re involved, This might help those that have been wrongly aflicted within the ten year limit for relationships that were and are loving back in the time of arrest.
Some even belong to ACSOL and maybe a board mbr or two. THIS is great news!
