The first statewide LGBTQ+ Survey recently launched in Connecticut, created by LGBTQ+ Health and Human Services Network (“The Network”) in collaboration with the Connecticut Department of Public Health Office of Health Equity.
The statewide LGBTQ+ Survey aims to enhance the understanding of the number of people that identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community in Connecticut, and identify the needs of the LGBTQ+ Community in Connecticut by asking questions related to their service needs, service access, and experiences of discrimination.
“The Network was created and is administered by the Legislature through the Commission on Women, Children, Seniors, Equity and Opportunity (CWCESCO) and consists of representatives from more than a dozen health and human service non-profit agencies as well as some State agencies; most representatives are also part of the LGBTQ+ community themselves. The purpose of the Network is to make recommendations to the State about how to work toward a safer and healthier environment for the LGBTQ+ community.”
