SLIDESHOW: U.S.’s LGBT Community—Revealing Trends & Attitudes

Just ahead of the Supreme Court’s rulings on same-gender marriage, the Pew Research Center released a series of surveys regarding attitudes, experiences and acceptance in the United States’ LGBT community. The studies provided some unique insights. DiversityInc presents some of the most revealing.

    I am personally offended at some of the pictures in the slideshow. While the pictures may depict some members of the GLBT community a few of them (women with a collar on, man with no shirt, individual with glitter all over their face) are the very stereotypical images that many in the GLBT community are trying to change. As a Manager who wants to promote diversity among my team, this presentation (while the wording is informative) will be ineffective and the message lost as the images will continue to stir negative connotations tainting the receptivity of the audience.

      I agree with what Toni B wrote – some of the pictures are stereotypical and do not promote diversity in a positive light particularly within professional circles. Just as it would be inappropriate and unacceptable to show pictures of scantily dressed women when trying to break down barriers in employment.

  • Honestly, I wasn’t paying any attention to the pictures, but I did find the survey results very interesting so I appreciate the information. I would really like to hear/learn more!
