This report documents how systemic failures to protect some students, recognize diverse families, and protect people from discrimination drive and trap LGBT people of color into a devastating cycle of poverty. The report details the ways in which a wide array of legal failures, combined with health and wealth disparities faced by people of color in general, result in higher poverty rates and increased economic insecurity for America’s 3 million LGBT people of color.
