The Situation

notable facts update

 



Due to the high cost of college and graduate school, along with the compound inequities LGBTQ people face, LGBTQ people find the pursuit of higher education inaccessible or graduate from university or graduate school with overwhelming debt. As a result, fewer LGBTQ people get the promising start they deserve, which means a lack of representation of LGBTQ people in leadership roles across all sectors.
