Nowaskie, D. and Roesler, A. (2022). The Impact of COVID-19 on the LGBTQ+ Community: Comparisons Between Cisgender, Heterosexual People, Cisgender Sexual Minority People, and Gender Minority People. Psychiatry Research. 309:114391.
The authors review results from a community survey to determine how the pandemic affected various aspects of the LGBTQ+ community (e.g., health, social, and occupational areas). They found that overall, the pandemic contributed to decreased quality of life among the community, particularly gender minority people. Results from this community snapshot and the authors call for additional research to create more culturally focused interventions to public health emergencies.
