2020-10-18

A new study from the progressive think tank the Center for American Progress ( CAP ) and the research group NORC at the University of Chicago reported that young queer adults face high rates of discrimination.

The survey included interviews with 1,528 self-identified LGBTQ adults ages 18 or older, recruited and administered through NORC's AmeriSpeak online panel and conducted June 9-30. CAP was able to break out results where appropriate for important subgroups of the community based on race, age, education, income, disability, gender or gender identity.

"I was honestly shocked by the findings in the survey, just how widespread discrimination was," said Sharita Gruberg, one of the study's authors, according to 19thNews.org .

According to the CAP website, major findings from the survey included:

-More than one in three LGBTQ Americans faced discrimination of some kind in the past year, including more than 3 in 5 transgender Americans.

-Discrimination adversely affects the mental and economic well-being of many LGBTQ Americans, including one in two who report moderate or significant negative psychological impacts.

-To avoid the experience of discrimination, more than half of LGBTQ Americans report hiding a personal relationship, and about one-fifth to one-third have altered other aspects of their personal or work lives.

-Approximately three in 10 LGBTQ Americans faced difficulties last year accessing necessary medical care due to cost issues, including more than half of transgender Americans.

-LGBTQ Americans have experienced significant mental-health issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
