Housing & Urban Life

LGBTI individuals who encounter domestic abuse and societal pressure often move to big cities, where they are forced into tenuous housing situations. LGBTIs who are domestic abuse survivors are in need of confidential safe houses.

SPoD works to create policies that are inclusive of LGBTI individuals in state, municipal or private safe houses, and to establish safe houses specifically for LGBTI individuals. It stands against the eradication of meeting or safe living spaces for LGBTI people, and engages in advocacy efforts to protect them from violence and harassment in public spaces, and in particular in public transport.
