Are you Out at Work?
I am, but according to a survey by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, many LGBT folks are not.
Here are some results
51% of LGBT employees say they hide their sexual orientation or gender identity from most or all of their coworkers.
42% of LGBT employees say they've lied about their personal relationships in the past year.
5% of workers ages 18–24 say they are open about their sexual orientation or gender identity, while 20% of their older colleagues say they are.
The survey also found that only 18% of LGBT Latinos are willing to be open with everyone at work, compared to 25% of African-Americans and 29% of whites.
