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 LGBQ-identified youth. In 2013, the Minnesota Student Survey included a question about sexual orientation/identity. Using these new data, presenters will walk the audience through the issues that affect the health of LGBTQ youth in Minnesota and explore possible policy solutions to address these health inequities.
