Alcohol use among LGBTQ young adults: General and population specific influences
LGBTQ people report elevated rates of alcohol misuse relative to their heterosexual and cisgender peers. These disparities are largely attributed to minority stress (e.g., stigma, discrimination), but recent research also suggests unique cognitive and community features that may elevate risk for alcohol misuse among LGBTQ populations. This talk will review the recent research on risk for alcohol misuse among LGBTQ people across the life course, and among LGBTQ young adults specifically. We will also review the factors that influence alcohol misuse among LGBTQ people in an effort to help inform population-specific prevention and intervention strategies in higher education.
