Health, Access to Care for "LGBT" Individuals in the U.S.

by Kaiser Family Foundation

NOTE: This detailed research on the health picture of people involved in homosexual and gender dysphoric behaviors, is an excellent overview. However, it is presented in a manner very sympathetic to these identities and lifestyles, so please keep that in mind as you review this information.

A few excerpts:

"Studies have found that sexual and gender minorities experience worse physical health compared to their heterosexual and non-transgender counterparts."

"Research has found that LGBT individuals are at elevated risk for some mental health and behavioral health conditions, with studies finding that they are two and a half times more likely to experience depression, anxiety, and substance misuse."
