A groundbreaking study will be released today by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute, entitled Hispanic and Latino Same-Sex Households in Florida: A Report from the 2000 Census. This report is the first to analyze the demographics and experiences of Hispanic/Latino same-sex households in Florida captured by the 2000 U.S. In past, this community has been virtually invisible to the public and the media. Hispanic and Latino Same-Sex Households in Florida analyzes Census data on age, immigration status, language, income, employment, home ownership, residential patterns, family structure, and military service.

The mission of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is to build the political power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community from the ground up. We do this by training activists, organizing broad-based campaigns to defeat anti-LGBT referenda and advance pro-LGBT legislation, and by building the organizational capacity of our movement. Our Policy Institute, the movement’s premier think tank, provides research and policy analysis to support the struggle for complete equality and to counter right-wing lies. As part of a broader social justice movement, we work to create a nation that respects the diversity of human expression and identity and creates opportunity for all. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., we also have offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis and Cambridge.
