Passport Magazine outlines the seven key findings in OutRight's research report, "Vulnerability Amplified: The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on LGBTIQ People."
"Recently, OutRight International released a shocking report about the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the LGBTQ+ community around the world. The study discovered seven areas of oppression that need to be addressed. To combat these problems, OutRight partnered with the United Nations to hold a digital conference to address the results. Hundreds of people from around the world attended the meeting, including UN representatives, nonprofit leaders, and media outlets. PASSPORT magazine was honored to be one of the outlets invited to participate. The group discussed the issues at hand and how best to solve them. One of the main topics that was repeatedly brought up is the fact that the LGBTQ+ community was already disproportionally disenfranchised before the onset of the pandemic. Here are the seven main findings from the report, and how we may be able to address these challenges to our lives and livelihoods."
