In 2007 and 2008, the Arcus Operating Foundation commissioned extensive quantitative and qualitative research to articulate the complex intersections of sexuality and race with the goal of determining how this information can help activists create greater public support and message effectively when speaking to African American audiences. Written by Donna Victoria and Cornell Belcher for the Arcus Racial Justice, Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity Program, the report offers new insights into the attitudes and perceptions of African Americans on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality issues and how communications can be strengthened between the LGBT movement and African American communities.
