Sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression
LGBTQ+ people contribute significantly to our society but continue to face discrimination and exclusion. Urban examines how gender identity and sexual orientation affect people’s financial well-being, health, and education. We also analyze the roles identity and orientation play in housing discrimination, workforce conditions, and LGBTQ+ and BIPOC* people’s experience with violence in the criminal justice system. Our work elevates people’s lived experiences and provides the evidence policymakers, advocates, and philanthropists need to advance opportunity and equity for people of marginalized identities and orientations. Urban welcomes conversations with and questions from changemakers across the country as we continue to develop this body of research and engage with the LGBTQ+ community.
