The LGBTQ+ population in the U.S., especially among younger generations, has increased over time. Specific data is essential, as LGBTQ+ individuals experience unique minority stress that can increase risk factors related, but not limited to, homelessness, substance use, and suicidality. Without specific data, it’s difficult for either researchers or those in public health to accurately understand or prevent the negative outcomes this community experiences, to meaningfully separate those experiences from the general population, or to design solutions to address their unique needs. In this article, Faye Seidler, an award-winning advocate that specializes in suicide prevention, LGBTQ+ populations, and state data, discusses how organizations can capture LGBTQ+ data, the challenges they may face in collecting it, and what the future looks like.
