Now Available: Updated Fact Sheet on LGBTQIA+ Equity and Housing

NLIHC’s Opportunity Starts at Home (OSAH) campaign released an updated multi-sector fact sheet addressing the barriers faced by LGBTQIA+ people in accessing affordable housing. Research increasingly shows that safe, stable, and affordable housing is a critical driver of positive outcomes in many areas of life but is less often accessible to members of the LGBTQIA+ community. The new fact sheet was developed with the help of leading LGBTQIA+ advocacy sector OSAH partners, including the National LGBTQ Taskforce and the National Women’s Law Center.

In total, the OSAH campaign has posted 16 multi-sector fact sheets to its website. Each fact sheet compiles landmark research to help policymakers, opinion leaders, and the public understand the deep connections between housing and other national priorities, from healthcare to education and economic growth. Advocates are encouraged to download these fact sheets to help them reach out to potential allies in other fields to make the case for cross-sector collaboration. To broaden the movement for housing justice, we must ensure allies in other sectors fully appreciate the extent to which housing influences their own priorities and goals.
