Exploring the LGBTQ+ Right to Privacy

LGBT Tech & Future of Privacy Forum

Some of the earliest [privacy] laws were around LGBTQ individuals; anti-sodomy, lesbians working in the workforce, police raids of LGBTQ spaces, and the laws that were used to give police and other federal agencies the right to entrap LGBTQ individuals...we don’t have full protections yet.

LGBT Tech & MANA

I think as a society, as setting a standard we have an obligation to push back on those companies and make sure they are setting those ethical boundaries if it's not in law, and/or help them set those ethical boundaries of what is acceptable or not acceptable.

"In honor of October as LGBTQ+ History Month, FPF and LGBT Tech explore three of the most significant privacy invasions impacting the LGBTQ+ community in modern U.S. history: anti-sodomy laws; the “Lavender Scare” beginning in the 1950s; and privacy invasions during the HIV/AIDS epidemic. These examples, along with many more, will be analyzed in FPF and LGBT Tech’s upcoming white paper on the sensitivity of data concerning a person’s gender identity, sexual orientation, and sex life."
