American adults who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer experience a higher rate of food and economic insecurity than non-LGBTQ people (heterosexuals). These findings came from a key Corona Virus survey recently released by the US Census Bureau. The agency said of the survey, “Overall 13.1% LGBTQ adults live in a household where there was sometimes or often not enough to eat in the past 7 days compared to 7.2% of non-LGBTQ adults asked the same question. 36.6% of LGBTQ adults live in a household in the past 7 days that has difficulty paying for usual household expenses compared to 26.1% of non-LGBTQ adults.
While the COVID pandemic has affected nearly all Americans, the new study sheds light on how it has been especially detrimental for the LGBTQ community.
