Anti-Gay Harassment, Violence and Psychosocial Correlates among a Select Sample of LGBT Pride Event Participants in New York City
Discrimination, harrassment and violence toward perceived lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) individuals has recently gained national recognition through the media and health promotion efforts such as the "It Gets Better" campaign. The purpose of this study is to explore the attitudes, beliefs and experiences of a cross-sample of LGBT pride event participants in New York City. Results of this study will be used to help inform the design of effective and efficient programs targeting underserved populations coping with sexual minority-related discrimination, harrassment and violence.
