The Global Queer Research Group (GQRG) is a new research group initiative based at the Liu Institute

for Global Issues, UBC. The purpose of the GQRG is to connect scholars, activists, and community members around research and policy issues concerning lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex communities, both locally and globally.  Areas of focus within the GQRG include (but are not limited to) homophobic violence and anti-homosexual legislation, global l/g/b/t/q/ i human rights issues, the rise of “homonationalism” in western Europe and North America, transitional justice for queer communities, queer migration and asylum issues, health issues like HIV/AIDS, and representations of queer experiences and identities.
