LGBTQ+ census

CHIPPEWA VALLEY (WQOW) - The Chippewa Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center has released a new census this year, hoping to get a sense of inclusivity in the area toward the local LGBTQ community.

Some questions include asking how comfortable people feel getting healthcare in the Chippewa Valley, and how available it is to people of all identities. Other questions gauge if people feel safe being out in certain parts of their lives.

The entire census is anonymous and will not collect personal information. No part of the census is mandatory. Those taking it can skip whatever questions they would like.

Matt Klein created the census, and said the community center has been wanting to put out a survey like this for a long time.

"The overall purpose is to sort of gather basic data about the LGBTQ community in the Chippewa Valley, specifically, in order so that we can track what's going on and better develop programs and resources for people here," Klein said.

Klein said the data results will be released to the public in January 2022. Klein added the goal is for the census to become an annual survey.
