Need to Know Information for the LGBTQ+ Community Around COVID-19

by HRC Staff

This is a global health crisis, and as we’re seeing in the government’s lagging response, our work is more necessary than ever.

The LGBTQ+ community has known adversity. In fact, we have drawn much of our strength and power from times of great uncertainty.

Now, we are living in an extraordinary moment yet again. As the world watches the spread of COVID-19, many of us are concerned and afraid for ourselves and our loved ones. And that fear cannot be minimized. But it can be the basis for action. As we have time and again, we must raise our voices together to fight for our community, to lift each other up and to vote out those who are not protecting us.
