A Multigenerational Conversation About LGBTQ Substance Misuse


What is the LGBTQ Community’s connection to substance use, misuse, and substance use disorder? How has it shifted over time? What are the most effective ways to screen, intervene, and support sexual and gender minority people who wish to change the role of substances in their lives? Our expert panel will feature four members of the LGBTQ community who are also Behavioral Health or Primary Care providers at an LGBTQ-focused health center. This multigenerational group will share a wealth of collected wisdom in a lively discussion about the concerns and trends they have seen over the years among their clients, friends, families of choice, and their own lived experiences.


  • Describe the history, dynamics,  and trends in alcohol use among sexual and gender minority populations from multiple perspectives within the community.
  • Explore the concerns and ask questions of providers who specialize in treating LGBTQ people who are dealing with substance use disorder.
  • Develop a toolbox of skills, tools, and affirming attitudes to support LGBTQ people across the lifespan
