SANCTUARY, is an investigation on “what is safe space” in the context of queer homeless youth.  Queer youth are especially vulnerable to homelessness: despite the fact that only roughly to 7% of the youth population identifies as LGBT, 40% of homeless youth are LGBT.

“Safe space” is a term that acknowledges the violence against LGBT people throughout history and the importance of certain locales and events in creating refuge for the LGBT movement.

Sanctuary explores both modern and historical uses of “safe space” and questions its physical and social implications.
