Where We Call Home: LGBT People of Color in Rural America

September 19, 2019|Movement Advancement Project (MAP)
LGBT Movement Advancement Project (MAP) builds on Where We Call Home: LGBT People in America to focus specifically on LGBT people of color in rural America. The report “shows how the structural differences of rural American life uniquely impact LGBT people of color, making them more vulnerable to discrimination and less able to respond to its harmful effects. It also offers recommendations for improving the lives of LGBT people of color in rural America.” It was developed in partnership with the Equality Federation, the National Black Justice Coalition, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and includes data from National Center for Transgender Equality‘s 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey.
