Amplifying Queer Voices: Mental Health and Tobacco Use Stories



LGBTQ individuals face health disparities linked to societal stigma, discrimination, and denial of their civic and human rights. Experiences of violence and victimization are frequent for LGBTQ individuals, and have a long lasting effect on the individual and community. Health equity within the LGBTQ community, especially within tobacco control, is acknowledging these experiences, striving to reduce these statistics, and investing resources to address disparities that have been caused by historic stigma, discrimination and inequities. This short video lifts up the voices of LGBTQ Californians who have experiences related to mental health and tobacco use.



Tobacco and Cannabis Use Survey

The Tobacco and Cannabis Study at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), in collaboration with the Los Angeles LGBT Center, is conducting a survey to understand how experiences with tobacco and cannabis use may differ for LGBTQIA+ young adults compared to cisgender, heterosexual young adults. 

This survey is available in English and Spanish. Eligible participants will earn $10 via Venmo.
