Communities of Color

People of color who are also LGBTQ+ face a unique set of challenges based on their experience at the intersection of two marginalized communities in our society.

Choose from one of our featured topics to explore specific areas of our Communities of Color resources.

The LGBTQ+ community will not achieve full equality as long as LGBTQ+ people of color continue to face oppression and marginalization on the basis of race. The Human Rights Campaign is committed to fighting racism and racial oppression, challenging hateful policies and rhetoric and representing and advocating for the full diversity of the LGBTQ+ community through a range of strategies, tactics and programs.
