AbstractSexual minority stress theory has provided an important framework for understanding sexual minority health inequities, laying the theoretical foundation for an emerging body of sexual minority health research over the past 40 years. The theory of sexual minority stress has been advanced most notably by Ilan Meyer, influencing the work of many LGBT health scholars. Importantly, this theory is in dialogue with scholarship on the ways in which identity- or status-based stress affects other minority groups, including racial minority populations, and has been extended more recently to gender-diverse populations with the development of gender minority stress theory.
