The Out to Lunch Gender, Sexuality, and Community is a weekly academic lecture and discussion series with guest scholars and community activists from various disciplines examining a variety of topics related to gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality. Each semester offers a broad sampling of the areas.

Today's lecture is entitled, "Results from the 2017 LGBTQ+ Youth National Survey: Intersectionality, Schools, and Health" and it will be presented by Ryan Watson.

Synopsis: In 2017, the Human Rights Campaign, Dr. Ryan Watson, and Dr. Rebecca Puhl surveyed over 17,000 LGBTQ+ youth aged 13-17 across the United States. Youth responded about their sexual and gender identities, health, school experiences, transgender-specific issues, and much more. This presentation will reveal the findings from the 2017 survey and discuss the future of health, research, and priorities for best serving the LGBTQ+ youth population in the United States.

Biography: Dr. Ryan J. Watson is an Assistant Professor in the department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Connecticut. He explores protective factors for vulnerable adolescents, with a focus on interpersonal relationships. Dr. Watson situates himself as a mixed-methods interdisciplinary family scientist and draws from life course and developmental frameworks. To further advance the scholarship of interpersonal relationships and sexual minority youth, Dr. Watson has used both population-based and non-probability datasets from the US, Norway, and Canada to examine how social support (friends, teachers, and parents) may attenuate the impact of risk factors such as victimization, homophobia, and stigma on well-being.
