In the 2020 census, the U.S. Census Bureau was considering removing a question about sexual orientation from a marketing survey for the census—a survey to determine why certain “hard-to-count” populations—non-white, undocumented, non-binary as well as LGBTQ—do not participate. If you don’t feel safe in public space, why would you participate? In empire, if you’re not counted, if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu. But after public outcry and that of advisers to the bureau, the question will now remain in the set of proposed questions for the survey.
