USA Today: Most LGBTQ Americans face discrimination amid wave of anti-LGBTQ bills, study says

GLAAD study

Despite increases in visibility and public understanding, LGBTQ individuals are at an increased risk for discrimination, according to GLAAD's Accelerating Acceptance study, out Wednesday.

GLAAD found that 70% of LGBTQ Americans surveyed said discrimination toward the community has increased within the last two years — in the workplace, on social media, in public accommodations and even within the family. The annual study measures “Americans’ attitudes and comfortability towards LGBTQ Americans.”

Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, says the uptick isn’t surprising, given the recent wave of legislation targeting LGBTQ people. This spans areas such as classroom censorship, book bans, healthcare restrictions and access to school sports. In 2022 alone, nearly 250 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced in state legislatures across the country.
