Census Sexual Orientation

Scout, a transgender man who uses one name, stands in his backyard flanked by multi-family homes common in his Providence, R.I. neighborhood, Wednesday, June 8, 2022. The 2020 census questionnaire drove Scout crazy. With no direct questions about sexual orientation and gender identity, it made him feel invisible, not worth including in the U.S. head count. Among LGBTQ people, the census only asked about same-sex couples living together, and Scout didn't live with his partner. So to compensate, he hounded his gay, cohabiting neighbors to respond and provide at least some visibility for the community. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
