This resource presents data collected from Latinx youth, shedding light on their challenges and triumphs encountered while navigating multiple, intersecting identities.
In 2017, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation partnered with researchers at the University of Connecticut to conduct a groundbreaking survey of over 12,000 LGBTQ youth and capture their experiences in their families, schools, social circles and communities. More than 2,900 LGBTQ Latinx youth responded to the survey. This resource presents data collected from these Latinx youth, shedding light on their challenges and triumphs encountered while navigating multiple, intersecting identities. This report utilizes the full sample (any respondent who answered more than 10 percent of the survey) and provides more detail about the experiences of gender-expansive youth than is captured in the 2018 Youth Report.
Additionally, you can learn more about the intersectional challenges that LGBTQ Latinx Americans can face when coming out in HRC's Living Authentically as LGBTQ Latinx Americans.
The Human Rights Campaign reports on news, events and resources of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation that are of interest to the general public and further our common mission to support the LGBTQ+ community.
