Because LGBTQ+ issues and populations have become more accepted in the general public than in the past, researchers have wondered about the differences between age cohorts relative to social stressors for LGBTQ+ populations. This is a qualitative study aimed at separating research participants into one of three age cohorts, gathering information about responses to different stressors common across all three age cohorts, and comparing responses across all three age cohorts.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Minority Stress, Distress, and Suicide Attempts in Three Cohorts of Sexual Minority Adults: a U.S. Probability Sample created by Ilhan H. Meyer, PhD, et al. in 2021.
