alt text This year, Equal Pay Today is partnering up with coalition members to raise awareness about the lack of wage gap data for LGBTQIA+ communities on June 13, 2024.

On this LGBTQIA+ Equal Pay Awareness Day, we join forces to challenge a system that devalues our labor, discriminates against our identities, and denies us the economic security we deserve. Together, we strive for a future where our contributions, regardless of gender identity, sex characteristics, or sexual orientation, are valued equally.
