Gay, lesbian and bisexual youth face dramatic challenges, even as tolerance generally grows in the U.S. and being open with one’s sexuality is finding more areas of encouragement. For LGBT youth of color, the difficulties can be multiplied.

At the same time, not much research into their lives and experiences has been done.

It was University of Arizona assistant professor Russell Toomey and colleagues who found that studies on the health and well-being of LGB youth of color were extremely limited.
