Suicide Risk Disparities with Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual People

Why they didn’t do this study with LGBTQ people makes me wonder. It was only done with gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. The focus is on how suicide risk varies with regard to several different social identity factors that include age and race. I hate to say sexual identity because I don’t think LTBTQ people are all about sex. Yet, the so-called professionals always do this. And I think that’s because these studies are done mostly by straights. 

“This study demonstrates the importance of asking about sexual identity in national data collection efforts, and it highlights the pressing need for suicide prevention services that address the specific experiences and needs of lesbian, gay, and bisexual adults of different genders, ages, and race and ethnic groups,” said Rajeev Ramchand, Ph.D., Senior Advisor on Epidemiology and Suicide Prevention at NIMH and lead author of the study.

Here’s more.  Some of the results show that gay, lesbian, and bisexual people are not alike with regard to suicide risk. And that doesn’t surprise me. I remember trying to have a conversation with a straight woman many years ago about the huge and vast differences between gay men and lesbians. It’s a good article but I would have been interested if they had included trans people and people who identify as queer.
