ABSTRACT. Despite the relevance of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disorders related to COVID-19 isolation, quarantine, and physical distancing among sexual and gender minority individuals, only limited research has been conducted on this topic. Using and replicating data from Gallup, GMU/CCCC, GWI, LGBT Foundation, Nursing Times, Rek et al. (2020), Rethink Mental Illness, Statista, The Trevor Project, The University of Melbourne, and YPCCC, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding COVID-19 pandemic-related stressors that may affect the psychological well-being of LGBTQ+ persons. The results of a study based on data collected from 6,400 respondents provide support for my research model. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.
