My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

From blogout.justout.com: Queering the Census, one sticker at a time…

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

The 2010 United States Census, set to be disseminated in March or April, does not include questions of sexual or gender orientation. As the census helps to define the makeup of communities – and guides decisions about things like healthcare and public safety – some activists are calling for the LGBT community to become visible in this landmark study.

CREDO Action has partnered with the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to offer one solution – a free sticker that LGBT people and their straight allies can stick on their census envelope. The organizations hope that this hot pink statement of presence will result in the inclusion of a tally of LGBT people in the next census.

Want to get counted? Get your free sticker and use it to seal the back of your census envelope before mailing the national survey back.
