Spectacular Bodies: Privacy, Public Identity & LGBTQ2+ Personality Seeking International LGBTQ2+ Access to Justice

Remote

Complimentary

This June, the Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce the sixth installment in an eight-part series of thought leadership webinars devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice.

Social media has forever changed the way people convey and receive information. Though often an entertaining way to engage the world, cringe-worthy moments shock the masses when seemingly private communications get thrust, however inadvertently, onto the world’s stage. From salacious headlines to political blunders, no one is immune in the court of public opinion. This presentation examines the ongoing transformation of LGBTQ2+ experience in the age of digital identity. Our panel will explore several timely topics, including the celebrity influence of LGBTQ2+ lifestyle, LGBTQ2+ activism through social media, the rise of revenge porn and cyber hacking, the phenomenon of public outing, and the scourge of cyber bullying.

Register today! Online registration now available.
