The Human Rights Campaign released a comprehensive report today entitled “At the Intersection: Race, Sexuality and Gender.” Steve Rothaus, the mind behind Gay South Florida provides a good introduction to the report and key findings, including:

” LGBT people of color view the world first from the point of view of race and gender. Most feel there is as much racism and sexism among LGBT people as there is among non-LGBT people, and racially motivated violence and discrimination are more prevalent than violence or prejudice based on sexual orientation”

Head to HRC’s Equality Foward commitment project to “Read the Key Findings,” download a PDF of the report, and read a message from President Barack Obama.
