Homophobia Is Hurting The Economy

 Excerpt from the HuffPost article:

The economic impact of discrimination against LGBT individuals is threefold
  1. Workplace and education discrimination lead to lower wages for LGBT individuals, which results in less tax revenue reaped by the government.
  2. A higher poverty rate due to low income means more government spending on social programs.
  3. And poor health, in the form of higher rates of depression, suicide and HIV/AIDS, means higher government health care costs and decreased participation in the workforce.
