Our Survey Partners


Our partners from across Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia all played a critical role in raising awareness about the survey to their networks and have contributed new scientific knowledge about the experiences and needs of LGBTQ people in the South.

We are preparing a series of public reports about the life of the LGBTQ people living in the South as a region and in each of the 14 focal states. We extend our gratitude to our partners who made this research possible, and we look forward to future collaborations.
