Say it loud: I’m black and I’m proud
March 24, 2002
A study of black lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people from various cities across the United States found that:
- Black LGBT people identified the most important issues facing their community as:
- Hate crime violence;
- Marriage and partner recognition.
- Half of the respondents agreed that racism is a problem for black LGBT people in their relations with white LGBT people;
- Two-thirds of those surveyed agreed that homophobia is a problem within the black community.
There is a clear need for additional research and policy analysis by, for and about black LGBT people.
