Resources for LGBTQ Employees - OutBuro - LGBT Employer Company Reviews Gay Professional Network LGBT Business News Information Lesbian Business News Queer Entrepreneur Community GLBT

As a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and heteroflexible employee you can face discrimination, harassment, paid less, passed over for advancement, and other challenges in many forms at work.  Studies have shown that facing such challenges can lead to stress, depression, anxiety and other mental health problems that need to be addressed so that you can live a full and productive life both at work an in your private time.  Sometimes you suffer in silence and just look for another job.  Other times if severe enough it can lead to even more complexities through an LGBT discrimination court case.

I know, you know and now a study shows that being LGBTQ through our life experiences and dedication make outstanding management potential.   Also that no matter what role we play as an employee, a company that values you fully as an LGBTQ person has a lot to gain from you individually and collectively as a group of unique perspectives and value.

A Broken Bargain is a report examining the many hardships and barriers facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) workers across the country, written in collaboration between the Movement Advancement Project (MAP), the Center for American Progress (CAP), and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
