LGBTQ Women’s Survey Report Released

By Charlotte Robinson, October 19, 2023

The Los Angeles LGBT Center in partnership with Justice Work & 120 partner organizations released the first full report from the largest & most comprehensive survey on LGBTQ women who partner with women in the United States entitled “We Never Give Up the Fight”: A Report of the National LGBTQ+ Women’s Community Survey”. Terra Russell-Slavin, LA LGBT Center’s Chief Impact Officer stated, “In a time when our communities are under constant legislative attack, it is more important than ever that we continue our fight toward queer liberation & equality while bringing the community’s everyday issues to the forefront of consciousness. Dr. Jaime M. Grant who co-authored the report in partnership with the Los Angeles LGBT Center added, “The bad news is that institutions fail us. but the very good news is, our friends & queer community step up & help us live the lives we deserve. LGBTQ+ women represent the most critical & least lauded safety net in our lives & our community organizations & policy-makers need to consider how we are resourcing & supporting queer friendship networks & sociality.” Carla Sutherland, Executive Director of Justice Work concluded, "This report is an important next step to making data from our groundbreaking study available to gender justice organizers, advocates & researchers. The study offers critical insights into the lives, needs & priorities of LGBTQ+ women at a scale that allows for meaningful intersectional analysis across key social lenses such as gender, sexuality, age, race & class." The National LGBTQ+ Women’s Community Survey was launched by the late activist Urvashi Vaid who I spoke with about the study in 2021. LISTEN
