On top of that, there is a different kind of disparity in the LGBT community that is often overlooked: disproportionately high smoking rates. Today, the LGBT community is among the hardest hit by tobacco. More than twice as many LGB students in grades nine through 12 have smoked a cigarette before the age of 13, compared to their heterosexual peers. LGB students also smoke more frequently. As the LGBT community gained more social and political acceptance, especially in the s, marketers took notice.
This study seeks to more fully characterize this disparity by examining tobacco use by distinct sexual identities and gender to better understand patterns of: 1 cigarette smoking and smoking history; and 2 use of other tobacco products including cigars, pipes, hookah, e-cigarettes, and smokeless tobacco. Data from the — National Adult Tobacco Survey, a random-digit dialed landline and cellular telephone survey of U. A sexual minority category was created by combining gay, lesbian, and bisexual responses, along with those who selected an option for other non-heterosexual identities. Smoking prevalence was higher among sexual minority adults Cigarette smoking was particularly high among bisexual women Sexual minority women started smoking and transitioned to daily smoking earlier than their straight peers. Use of other tobacco products was higher among sexual minority women: prevalence of e-cigarette
Emerging evidence suggests bisexual populations are at increased risk for a variety of negative health outcomes, including tobacco use. This study explores differences in use of tobacco products across LGB subgroups, including gender differences among bisexuals. Weighted tobacco use prevalence and adjusted logistic regression results are reported.
