Seven out of ten people in the LGBITQ+ community consider the lack of family support as the main problem they face, according to the National Survey on Sexual Diversity (ENDS) conducted, for the first time, by the non-profit social organization Somos Más. For this study, 1,119 questionnaires were collected (of which 1,007 were used) in two months, it began on May 17th, 2021, within the framework of the day against LGBTIQ+ phobia, and was active until July 17th of the same year. Among the results, it was found that 60% of the respondents do not have a religion, have had suicidal ideas and suffered discrimination because of their physical appearance. The NGO works to promote social research processes that contribute to the design and construction of public policies framed in guaranteeing the human rights of all people. In addition, it is the only organization in Central America and the Caribbean to win the 2019 and 2020 Ibero-American Youth Award in the activism category.
