Current Environmental Psychology student Jah Elyse Sayers was interviewed by The Design Trust for Public Space. Sayers shared their own experiences researching connections between queerness and space, stating, “I think the actual key to creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ communities is going to be making sure LGBTQ+ communities have access to space as well as the power to create and make decisions about spaces. When doing so, we also need to consider the multiple intersections of queer identity: how are you increasing access for and listening to the needs of queer people who are undocumented, queer people who are homeless, queer people who are people of color, queer people who are differently abled, queer people who have a mental health issue…? If your understanding of making safe space for LGBTQ+ people isn’t intersectional, then you’re likely to miss out on a number of strategies to make spaces safer for LGBTQ+ people.”
