HRC AND PSB RELEASE DATA ON THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON LGBTQ COMMUNITIES OF COLOR:

This new research builds on prior data showing that LGBTQ people are disproportionately impacted economically by the pandemic, and shows that LGBTQ people of color are more likely to have become unemployed due to the virus, are more likely to have had their work hours reduced, and more likely to have asked for delays in paying their rent or bills.

The data shows that: 38% of LGBTQ people of color have had their work hours reduced, compared to 29% of white LGBTQ people, and 24% of the general population

22% of LGBTQ people of color became unemployed, compared to 14% of white LGBTQ people and 13% of the general population
