Ahead of Juneteenth, The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has released a new report which highlights the prevalence and impact of discrimination on Black LGBTQ People.
This report uses data from the 2020 Black LGBTQ Community Survey, a national survey of Black LGBTQ adults in the United States, and employs an intersectional statistical model to demonstrate the prevalence and impact of discrimination in education, employment, healthcare, housing and public accommodations.
