Recently enacted laws in North Carolina and Mississippi and their impact on the rights of the LGBTQ community have brought to light a serious public health issue: an increased risk of HIV and gender-based violence. Laws such as these, as well as in other states, specifically exclude communities from protections against discrimination and create environments with gender inequality, stigmatization, and differential access to services. Together, this can lead to increased risk of violence. Discrimination against the LGBTQ community comes in many forms. Too often LGBTQ people face prejudice that makes it harder for them to get and keep a job. Due to economic instability, people in the transgender community, for example, may find that sex work is one of the few options they have to survive. This can lead to increased drug use and HIV.
