Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for LGBTQ Working People

LGBTQ working people will likely see a major impact – both in their health and their checkbooks – by the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. LGBTQ people have higher rates of smoking, a risk factor, as well as higher rates of cancer and other immune-compromised conditions, which are also risk factors with this disease. Additionally, LGBTQ working people are more likely have jobs in industries being hit hard by the crisis, such as creative, transportation, service, and others. We’re also more likely to be in low-wage and hourly jobs that are seeing massive layoffs and hour reductions.

The labor movement is mobilizing to fight to protect all working people in these turbulent times and we want to be sure you have the latest information available. Below, you can find general information about the virus and information about what unions are doing in response to COVID-19 as well as LGBTQ-specific resources and actions you can take to ensure all working people get the help they need in this crisis.
