ABSTRACT. I develop a conceptual framework based on a systematic and comprehensive literature review on sexual and gender minority-specific COVID-19-related stressors and psychosocial burdens. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from Benenden Health, CVN, Ginger, Harvard Medical School, ICF, LGBT Foundation, Rek et al. (2020), Strada Education Network, and UNC School of Medicine, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the psychosocial consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic as experienced by LGBTQ+ individuals. The data for this research were gathered via an online survey questionnaire. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.

Keywords: sexual; gender; minority; COVID-19; stressor; psychosocial burden
