Latinx LGBTQ+ Students and Their Experiences

Fact Sheet

LGBTQ+ students have worse academic and health outcomes than their heterosexual counterparts, and these disparities increase when taking race/ethnicity into account.

57% of Latinx LGBTQ+ students report feeling unsafe at school due to their gender expression, and 35% are more likely to miss school due to feelings of unsafety. This fact sheet provides key statistics on Latinx LGBTQ+ students and their experiences and offers policy recommendations, which are more important than ever given the impact of the pandemic on students’ mental health.
