Sexual Minority Stress Jeopardizes Mental Health of Midlife and Older Gay Men


Sexual minority stress, along with aging-related stress, jeopardizes the mental health of midlife and older gay men, according to a UCLA Fielding School of Public Health-led study published in the American Journal of Public Health. In the study, sexual minority stress included the men’s perceptions that they needed to conceal their sexual orientation or that others were uncomfortable with or avoided them because of their sexual orientation.
