Though the gay rights movement in the United States has seen huge progress in the last century—especially the last two decades—a new report highlights a bleak reality: LGBTI people are more likely than their peers to live in poverty. The report from the LGBTQ Poverty Collaborative finds that the needs of low-income LGBTI communities are not being fully served by mainstream anti-poverty organizations or by LGBTI advocacy groups.
