As an essential pillar for physical and mental health, housing conditions remain unequally accessible for members of the LGBT+ community.
As ongoing research shows, same-sex couples and transgender people are less likely to be offered available housing units, and provided with appointments to view homes, but are more likely to be charged increased rates for rental services. Things are worse for older LGBT+ community members and racial minority LGBT+ individuals.
Housing conditions are essential for physical and mental health, and every person deserves safe and adequate housing.
