Juan Battle heads the Social Justice Sexuality Initiative, a project exploring the lived experiences of Black, Latina/o, and Asian lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Juan Battle is a professor of Sociology, Public Health, & Urban Education at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY).

The Social Justice Sexuality Project is one of the largest ever national surveys of Black, Latina/o, and Asian and Pacific Islander, and multiracial lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. With over 5,000 respondents, the final sample includes respondents from all 50 states; Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico; in rural and suburban areas, in addition to large urban areas; and from a variety of ages, racial/ethnic identities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. This talk will focus on findings from Black respondents.
