Sexual Minority People of Color: Racism & Homophobia

This study was a mixed methods investigation of the roles of racism and heterosexism in the lives of sexual minority people of color. The quantitative portion of the study tests the associations of multiple characteristics of discrimination (frequency, scope, and bases) with negative and positive mental health outcomes. Qualitative data focused on deriving an in-depth understanding of the ways that sexual minority people of color perceive the discrimination they experience.
