Sampson, Kyra Chanel; Smith, Raymond Arthur

Individuals who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans*-gender and queer constantly face difficulties, but it can be said that the issue they face the most is discrimination. However, within the LGBTQ community itself, discrimination can occur and there is a likely chance that it may be race-related. This issue brief is going to focus on the ways in which discrimination amongst LGBTQ communities has the potential to be racially-driven. It will then continue to explore the consequences that this sort of prejudice brings forth.
