ABSTRACT. This article presents an empirical study carried out to evaluate and analyze COVID-19-related mental health burden and minority stress, marginalized social identities, and experiences of LGBTQ+ discrimination. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from ABC News, ACHA, ARI, ILGA-Europe, KFF, GWI, Harvard Medical School, HMN, NCAA, Pew Research Center, Statista, UNC School of Medicine, VMIAC, and Washington Post, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the psychological consequences of COVID-19 among sexual and gender minority communities. Data collected from 5,700 respondents are tested against the research model. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.

Keywords: COVID-19; mental health; LGBTQ+; minority; stress; marginalization
