The Disparities Faced by the LGBTQ Community in Times of COVID-19

Sachdeva, I., Aithal, S., Yu, W., et al. (2021). The Disparities Faced by the LGBTQ+ Community in Times of COVID-19. Psychiatry Research. 297.
In this letter to the editor, the writers describe health care disparities (e.g., respiratory health conditions due to higher rates of smoking, the effect of hormone therapy on immunity, the effect of social isolation, and a variety of challenges related to health care access and provision) that put the LGBTQ+ population at greater risk during the pandemic. The authors emphasize the need for health care providers to increase awareness and ensure equitable access and care of this a “less visible segment of the marginalized population.”
