Sexual orientation disparities in physical health: age and gender effects in a population-based study

Conclusions Age emerged as an important effect modifier of physical health disparities based on sexual orientation. Gender-specific findings suggest that sexual orientation disparities persist into adulthood for women but are gradually attenuated for older age groups; in contrast, for men, these disparities disappear starting with young adults. These results support a developmental model of minority stress and physical health among LGB individuals. (Source: Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology)
