A Survey of Southern LGBTQ+ Health


Last month, the Community Health Programs Director for the Campaign for Southern Equality (CSE) held a Q&A with Provide staff about the specifics of the Report of the 2019 Southern LGBTQ Health Survey. CSE is a natural partner in conversation and experimentation with Provide due to our mutual work addressing stigma at the intersection of reproductive/sexual/gender and health.

The survey report covers new data about LGBTQ+ Southerners’ physical and mental health; overall quality of care; experiences with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and self-harming behaviors; and experiences with HIV. This survey is one of the largest samples ever of LGBTQ+ Southerners talking specifically about their health, their bodies, and their lives. It tells the story of 5,617 people’s individual experiences with health and health care. And taken together, the data tell a powerful shared story.
