2021 LGBTQ+ Community Survey
Rainbow Families DC is a non-profit organization serving LGBTQ+ parents, families, and prospective parents with education programs, support groups, resources and community connections.
Early in 2021, with Catherine Kelly at the George Washington University overseeing the process, Rainbow Families embarked on a comprehensive survey of the LGBTQ+ community in the Washington DC metropolitan region.
It is our hope the information here may provide tools – with updated, local data – for area non-profit organizations, schools and civic leaders to better plan and improve all services for the LGBTQ+ community.
