Elton John AIDS Foundation;
This report—commissioned by Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) in partnership with the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF)—highlights how marginalized communities have been impacted by COVID-19 in the U.S. and globally and what their key evolving needs have been as the pandemic has progressed; provides reflections on lessons learned from private funders' emergency COVID-19 response; and presents a set of recommendations for funders, global health institutions, and governments—including the new U.S. administration—for their efforts going forward. The learning and recommendations are based upon and informed by a review of surveys, reports, and rapid assessments produced by HIV-related funders, philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs), research institutions, and global, regional, and national networks representing the populations of focus for the learning effort, as well as over 30 interviews with funders, networks, community-based organizations (CBOs), and individual activists, which were conducted by an external consultant team from November 2020 to February 2021.The key underlying theme running throughout this report, and the most commonly expressed reflection from CBOs, networks, and the funders who support them, is that the challenges and stresses highlighted by the pandemic are not new for people living with or at risk of HIV, especially in the case of LGBTQ individuals and communities of color in the U.S. and key populations globally. These challenges reflect the structural, systemic issues that have disproportionately affected these communities for decades, and continue to do so.
American Council on Education;
Over the past decade, mental health and well-being have increasingly become major priorities on college campuses as concerns related to student mental health have escalated. In a 2019 survey of college and university presidents, 81 percent of respondents stated that student mental health on campus had become more of a priority compared with three years prior (Chessman and Taylor 2019). This paper uses data from Wake Forest University's spring 2019 Wellbeing Assessment to unpack the differences in the subjective well-being of students with minoritized identities. We found that undergraduate students with minoritized racial and ethnic, gender, and sexual orientation identities have substantially lower subjective well-being levels than their peers with privileged identities. As students reported holding more minoritized identities, their subjective well-being levels decreased.
Global Philanthropy Project (GPP);
In early 2020, Global Philanthropy Project worked with our member organizations and philanthropic partners to develop two related pieces of private research: 1) a report mapping the funding of the global "anti-gender ideology" or "anti-gender" movement, and 2) a report mapping the progressive philanthropic response. We offer the following public document in order to share key learning and to offer additional analysis gained in the comparison of the two reports. Additionally, we share insights based on comparing global and regional LGBTI funding data as documented in the 2017-2018 Global Resources Report: Government and Philanthropic Support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex Communities.These findings offer a clear call to action: progressive movements and their philanthropic partners are being outspent by hundreds of millions of dollars each year, and the institutions providing that opposition funding have developed sophisticated and coordinated systems to learn, co-fund, and expand their influence. The philanthropic community is called to recognize the scale of the fight and to be both rigorous and creative in our response. Let us seize this remarkable opportunity to work together and engage our collective learning, spending power, and institutional knowledge to help transform the conditions of our communities. Together we can leverage the collective power that this generational crisis demands.

Funders for LGBTQ Issues;
We are pleased to present The 2017–2018 Global Resources Report: Government and Philanthropic Support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex Communities, a comprehensive report on the state of foundation and government funding for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) issues. This report documents data on 19,764 grants awarded by 800 foundations, intermediary NGOs, and corporations and by 15 donor government and multilateral agencies over the two-year period of 2017–2018. The report provides detailed data on the distribution of LGBTI funding by geography, issue, strategy, and population focus, offering a tool for identifying trends, gaps, and opportunities in the rapidly changing landscape of LGBTI funding.The 2017–2018 Global Resources Report builds on two previous editions, which focused on grantmaking in the calendar years 2013–2014 and 2015–16. With this third edition, we have now documented comprehensive data through six calendar years of grantmaking, allowing us to conduct a deeper analysis of LGBTI funding trend lines over time. In many sections of this report, we offer a comparison with the previous report documenting 2015–16, and in some key places we share analysis across the full six-year period.This third report represents a continuing and evolving collaboration between two philanthropic networks, Global Philanthropy Project and Funders for LGBTQ Issues. The trust developed between these networks has enabled us to adjust the report development process over time as we identify opportunities to activate the unique competencies and assets of both networks. In this iteration of the process, Global Philanthropy Project coordinated development and analysis of the data from foundations and corporations based outside of the United States (U.S.) and from all government and multilateral institutions. Funders for LGBTQ Issues coordinated development and analysis of the data from foundations and corporations based in the U.S., and provided generous overall guidance based on more than a decade of experience producing the comprehensive annual U.S. domestic tracking report on LGBTQI funding.
OutRight Action International;
In this pioneering report, "Vulnerability Amplified: The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on LGBTIQ people", OutRight Action International documents the effects of the pandemic on LGBTIQ people.While the COVID-19 pandemic leaves no country and no individual unaffected, drawing on almost 60 rapid research interviews conducted with LGBTIQ people in 38 countries from all regions of the world, the report overwhelmingly shows that the challenges faced by LGBTIQ people as a result of the virus and surrounding containment measures are specific and amplified compared to the broader population.The specific challenges faced by LGBTIQ people identified in OutRight's new report are:Devastation of livelihoods – rising food and shelter insecurity resulting from job loss, and economic fall out as a result of over-representation of LGBTIQ people in the informal sector and broad employment discrimination;Disruptions in accessing health care, including crucial HIV medication and gender affirming treatments, and reluctance to seek health care due to discrimination, stigma and refusal of services experienced by LGBTIQ people even outside a pandemic;Elevated risk of domestic and family violence – the most prevalent form of violence faced by LGBTIQ people on a day-to-day basis is heightened in circumstances of lockdowns, curfews and lack of access to support services and community resources;Social isolation and increased anxiety which are further heightened by being cut off from chosen families and the LGBTIQ community;Scapegoating, societal discrimination and stigma – there is an unfortunate history of LGBTIQ people being blamed for emergency situations, leading to further stigmatization, marginalization, violence and danger;Abuse of state power – repression, exclusion, and criminalization are all on the rise in countries prone to authoritarianism and regressive gender ideologies, with some states using the emergency situation to clamp down specifically on LGBTIQ people;Concerns about organizational survival – amplifying the effects even further are the impacts on LGBTIQ community organizations and spaces, which are a lifeline to countless LGBTIQ people. Organizations now face an uncertain future with funding cuts, lockdowns, and having to shift activities on line while calls for direct, practical support are on the rise.
Global Philanthropy Project (GPP);
In September 2020, Global Philanthropy Project conducted a second-phase survey of the leading government, multilateral, and philanthropic funders of global LGBTI issues, receiving responses from a group of funders who account for just under half of all global LGBTI funding. The findings from that survey, as well as a review of COVID-19 global humanitarian response funding, inform Where are the Global COVID-19 Resources for LGBTI Communities?The report found that in 2020, many LGBTI organizations across the world responded by shifting from human rights-focused programs to providing local humanitarian relief. Despite this, LGBTI communities have been largely excluded from COVID-19 humanitarian resources. The report outlines the potential long-term implications of the pandemic on global LGBTI movement resources.
On June 12, 2016, a man fatally shot 49 people and wounded 58 more at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando, FL. The victims, primarily LGBTQ and Latinx, were senselessly killed in what was supposed to be a safe space while celebrating their shared identity and Pride month. This horrific tragedy changed the LGBTQ community forever, catalyzing the movement to unite behind gun violence prevention. Pulse is a reminder of the work that remains to end the acts of hate that wound and kill LGBTQ Americans today -- violence that all too often is perpetrated with guns.As the nation marks four years since this tragedy, we must never lose sight of the unfulfilled hopes, the families shattered and the love lost in this preventable act of mass murder. The thousands more killed by gun violence since Pulse underscore the glaring failure of our elected officials to take common sense steps to combat the scourge of gun violence that plagues our nation. Advocates and people across this country must remain as resolved as ever to honor those taken with action, and work to ensure that all of us may live safe from violence.
