LGBTQ violent deaths to be tracked in California data collection program

California will be the first state in the nation to track violent deaths, including suicides and homicides, among the LGBTQ community, thanks to a new bill that goes into effect Jan. 1, 2022. Assembly Bill 1094, which Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law Thursday, will establish a three-year pilot program in six yet-to-be-selected counties where coroners and medical examiners will receive cultural competency training on how to collect data on sexual orientation and gender identity in all cases of violent deaths.
