The state of Georgia has no hate crime law, providing no way to track violent crimes against members of the LGBTQ community, no appropriate punishment, and leaving many victims without a path to closure. No Safe Space is a video and pront resource documenting LGBTQ violence in Georgia. The shorts detail what victims went through, how the lack of a hate crime law prevented a fitting punishment from being carried out and kept the attackers’ targeting of LGBTQ victims off the record, and, most importantly, what this shortcoming in the law has meant to the victims – their frustration, their distress, and their continued fear.
