Research has documented worse health outcomes and constrained access to care (e.g. routine medical visits, health insurance coverage, and continuity of care) for lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) adults. Rural residents also experience persistent disparities in health and access to care. However, there is limited information on rural/urban differences in health by sexual orientation, despite the importance of examining health inequities associated with intersecting and marginalized identities. This policy brief examines differences in self-rated health by sexual orientation and rural/urban location.
