The Equal Rights Center has found — perhaps unsurprisingly, but nonetheless, depressingly — that people who indicate that they have worked for LGBT causes on their resumes are 23% less likely to land a job interview than people who don’t.

The study sent resumes of nonexistent people to over 100 different openings at eight companies. Some applicants listed “LGBT rights activism” in a volunteer section of their resumes. Others listed “women’s rights activism” or “environmental activism.” The LGBT activists were slightly more qualified than the others, and yet, were called for interviews far less often.

Of course, while the correlation between “doing LGBT activism” and “being LGBT” is probably strong, it’s not 100%. That’s probably how people are able to get away with this. “No, I don’t care what they do in the privacy of their bedroom, but someone with these interests just isn’t a good fit for the company.”
