The PRIDE Study

The PRIDE Study is the first large-scale, long-term national health study of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+), or another sexual or gender minority.

Directed by Drs. Juno Obdein-Maliver and Mitchell Lunn (pictured right), The PRIDE Study conducts longitudinal data collection of members of sexual and gender minority (SGM) communities. SGM individuals not only face significant discrimination and stigma in everyday life, but also at the hands of medical and research professionals. At the same time, SGM people experience numerous health and health care inequities such as high smoking rates, worst mental health outcomes, and high prevalence of certain infectious diseases.

To better understand SGM communities, it was clear that a community-engaged perspective was required when developing The PRIDE Study. In order to accomplish this goal, the study is guided by PRIDEnet, a national network of individuals and organizations that actively engaged SGM communities in all stages of health research.
