Intimate Conviction 2: Continuing the Decriminalization Dialogue volume

In November 2020, the HIV Legal Network hosted Intimate Conviction 2: Continuing the Decriminalization Dialogue conference online, inviting more than 30 expert speakers to share their knowledge and experience with laws criminalizing same-sex intimacy.

We are now very pleased to share the edited volume of presentations from this conference. Here you will find personal stories of how these laws have affected LGBTQ+ people around the world, analysis of biblical texts that have been used to uphold these laws, and thoughts on how these can and must be changed to uphold the human rights of LGBTQ+ people everywhere.

The volume was successfully launched in Jamaica, Barbados, and Dominica, where it was well received by all in attendance. You can view the livestream videos from Jamaica and Barbados here and here.
