There is no relationship : service provider staff on how LGBT young people experience policing
Dwyer, Angela & Hotten, Justine (2009) There is no relationship : service provider staff on how LGBT young people experience policing. In Lockie, Stewart (Ed.) TASA Refereed Conference Proceedings 2009, Australian National University, Canberra.
There has been an extended engagement with how young people experience policing, with a focus on the intersection between policing and indigeneity, ethnicity, gender, and social class. Interestingly, sexuality and/or gender diversity has been almost completely overlooked, both nationally and internationally. This paper reports on LGBT youth service providers’ accounts about police and LGBT young people interactions. It overviews the outcomes of semi-structured interviews with key LGBT youth service providers in different regions of Brisbane, Queensland. As the first qualitative engagement with these issues from the perspective of service providers, it highlights not only how LGBT young people experience policing, but also how service providers need to ‘work the system’ of policing to produce the best outcomes for LGBT young people.
