Sexual Minority Disparities in Health and Well-Being as a Consequence of the COVID-19 Pandemic Differ by Sexual Identity
Fish, J., Salerno, J., Williams, N., et al. (2021). Sexual Minority Disparities in Health and Well-Being as a Consequence of the COVID-19 Pandemic Differ by Sexual Identity. LGBT Health. 8(4):263-272.
The authors examined how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted sexual minority adults in the U.S. as compared with heterosexual adults. They analyzed data from a national sample of U.S. adults reporting on eight measures of wellbeing. The results show that wellbeing declined across sexual identity subgroups during the pandemic, but that bisexual men and women were most negatively affected. The authors emphasize the importance of cultural responsiveness for emergency planning during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
