Out in the South, Part Two identifies more than 750 LGBTQ community assets in the U.S. South
Funders for LGBTQ Issues has released a new report entitled Out in the South, Part Two: LGBTQ Community Assets in the U.S. South. The report finds that not only is the U.S. South home to more LGBT adults than any other region, it is also home to an impressive array of more than 750 LGBTQ community assets.
Out in the South, Part Two (2014) assesses the state of the LGBTQ movement in the U.S.South, based on a comprehensive scan of the region's LGBTQ community assets, a survey of more than 200 organizers and service providers working in the South, and in-depth interviews with 30 LGBTQ leaders. It also identifies several funding strategies with potential for high impact.
The report, authored by Claudia Horwitz, finds that more than two-thirds of the LGBTQ community assets in the U.S. South are grassroots community groups. As the report notes, "in every state in the region there is an inspiring depth of LGBTQ work being done with shoestring budgets and minimal or no full-time staff."
