Being Black & LGBTQ: Honor Pride Month By Educating Yourself Through This Resource Guide

June 24, 2020

June marks Pride Month. And this year, with all of the activism around the Black Lives Matter movement – we are choosing to honor the month by sharing educational resources on both the LGBTQ and Black communities.

According to the Williams Institute, African Americans identifying as LGBTQ are disproportionately young and female – and make up roughly 12% of the entire US LGBTQ community and 4.6% of the US population. Within the Black community, individuals identifying as LGBTQ are more likely to be unemployed, uninsured and food insecure – making them one of the most disadvantaged groups in the US.
