Census Data Finds More than 100,000 Hispanic Same-Sex Couple Households Nationwide

A study released Tuesday by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute and the National Latino/a Coalition for Justice finds there are more than 100,000 Hispanic same-sex couple households nationwide, and that same-sex couples in which both partners are Hispanic earn less and are less likely to own a home than white non-Hispanic same-sex couple households. The study also finds that roughly two-thirds of same-sex couples in which both partners are Hispanic are raising children, and that nearly half (44 percent) of the individuals in same-sex couples in which both partners are Hispanic report they are not U.S. citizens, compared to just 5 percent of individuals in white non-Hispanic same-sex couples.
