This study explored perception of discriminatory behaviors that LGBT people experienced during recruitment and selection processes for employment and evaluated the relationship between these experiences and psychological wellbeing. The sample was made up of 157 participants self-identified as LGBT. Most of these participants (62.2%) reported to have experienced discrimination in these processes. We used frequencies, descriptive statistics, and correlational statistics to analyze the relation between psychological wellbeing and its dimensions with the perception of discriminatory behaviors scale. The most significant relation was between positive relations, and we did not find correlations with psychological wellbeing. Joking about LGBT people was the most frequent behavior reported which can be understood as a socially accepted conduct.
