LGBTIQ and Other Sexual and Gender Minority Lives and COVID-19


The focus of this Working Group is to examine the impact of COVID-19 as a pandemic in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) and other sexual and gender minority (SGM) individuals. We are particularly interested in access to medical, community, and disaster ministry resources. We are also interested in the compounding identity vectors of race, disability, and poverty on the capacity of LGBTIQ and SGM to sustain themselves and their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
