New report by the Williams Institute at UCLA: “The Impact of Stigma and Discrimination against LGBT People in Michigan”

A new study released by the Williams Institute at UCLA titled “The Impact of Stigma and Discrimination Against LGBT People in Michigan” takes a look at the legal, social, economic, and health impacts of stigma and discrimination for the over 311,000 LGBT adults and 61,000 LGBT youth that live in our state.

Michigan currently ranks 20th in the nation for public support and acceptance of LGBT rights, and the researchers behind the study suggest that if Michigan continues moving toward a more supportive and accepting environment for LGBT individuals, it would reduce economic and health disparities among LGBT people in the state and ultimately benefit the society and economy of the state as a whole.
