While everyone is suffering from the economic fallout of the coronavirus, LGBTQ workers have been hit especially hard. In a research partnership with Business Insider, business advisory firm Brunswick found that LGBTQ workers are being disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis when compared with their straight, cisgender colleagues. The Brunswick report also shows that LGBTQ workers across the country have been more likely to lose their jobs as a result of the economic disruption brought on by COVID-19 lockdowns and social-distancing measures. This has had devastating consequences — from mental and physical health issues to weaker financial stability.
