Happiness and quality of life are both essential to people’s well-being. Yet in too many countries those qualities in LGBT people are seriously compromised due to the stigma, discrimination, violence and even the criminalization they face. Excess mental stress affects our health, welfare and prosperity. The just-launched LGBT Happiness Study survey seeks to measure that. (Participate in the survey here.) A global survey on happiness, sex and quality of life among LGBT people, the LGBT Happiness Study is a major global research study that aims to give a voice to our community. It takes about 12 minutes to complete, and it’s a great opportunity for LGBT people to be heard. You participation can help make a difference for our community around the world. LGBT people face inequalities in health and standards of living, and — because of homophobia — we often face additional discrimination in education, at work and in a variety of institutional, governmental and societal ways.
