The Health of LGBQ Youth:
Findings from the Minnesota Student Survey

National research shows that LGBQ youth (lesbian, gay, bisexual, questioning) face significant health inequities. Until recently, there were no data specific to Minnesota on the health of youth identifying as LGBQ. In 2013, the Minnesota Student Survey included a question about sexual orientation/identity. Using these new data, presenters will walk attendees through the issues that affect the health of LGBQ youth in Minnesota, and explore possible policy solutions to address these health inequities.

Presenters: Ann Kinney, Minnesota Dept. of Health; John Salisbury, Rainbow Health Initiative
