In 2022, nearly 13,000 LGBTQ+ youth, from all 50 states and Washington, DC, participated in the 2022 Youth Survey, reporting on their health, well-being, and experiences across all aspects of daily life.

In many cases, the cards remain stacked against LGBTQ+ youth in terms of acceptance and support from their families, their mental health and safety in schools.
