SOGI: Health and Rights

The SOGI: Health and Rights laboratory focuses on the role of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) in human health, development, and rights. Our projects focus on the links between SOGI and health/well-being, with an emphasis on how prejudice and stigma shapes daily life. Our research includes attention to the unique vulnerabilities and strengths of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) people across the lifespan, yet most of our studies focus on adolescents and healthy development.
