Philanthropy OUTlook: LGBTQ Latinx Communities, produced in partnership with Hispanics in Philanthropy as a part of their virtual summit, provides an overview of the unique needs of LGBTQ Latinx communities, spotlights the level of philanthropic support they receive, and offers key recommendations for funders looking to better support LGBTQ Latinx people.
The infographic highlights severe disparities faced by LGBTQ Latinx communities, particularly in economic opportunity and health outcomes, making LGBTQ Latinx people particularly vulnerable to the current COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn. The infographic also finds that funding for LGBTQ Latinx people has been slowly increasing when excluding the dramatic spike of support following the Pulse Nightclub Massacre in 2016. Still, the funding is paltry. When excluding OneOrlando Fund grantmaking, funding for LGBTQ Latinx communities has never exceeded $5 million in any calendar year.
