There have been great strides in societal acceptance of sexual minority identities over the past decade. However, underrepresented groups within the LGB+ community face unique challenges that until recently have largely been left out of the narrative. The purpose of this symposium is to provide insight to the impact community and family level predictors have on overall well-being among LGB+ people of color from adolescence through adulthood.
To examine the effects of managing multiple minority identities on well-being among LGB+ people of color. To assess well-being across the lifespan including adolescence, early adulthood, and adulthood. To analyze within group variability of well-being among LGB+ people of color.
