From Marquez-Velarde:

“The chronic exposure to social disadvantage-related stressors becomes biologically embedded over time. Discrimination is a chronic stressor associated with adverse health outcomes among both racial & ethnic and sexual & gender minoritized individuals. Extant research predominantly examines the health effects of discrimination attributed to a single minoritized status. Using an intersectional framework, I explore the association between racial/ethnic and sexual/gender-based discrimination and cardiovascular and sleep health outcomes in a sample of self-identified LGBTQ+ individuals.”
