Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people may be more likely to smoke and drink excessively, a major new study has found.
The new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also found that 1.6% of Americans identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% identified as bisexual.
‘Significant differences were found in health-related behaviors, health status, health care service utilization, and health care access among U.S. adults aged 18–64 who identified as straight, gay
or lesbian, or bisexual,’ the report found.
One of those times when the old and new meanings of a “gay life” coincide perhaps.
