While much of the research and messaging around LGBT health initially focused on the negative health disparities -- that is, the ways that LGBT populations are worse off in health/healthcare -- there has been attention paid more recently on the concept of LGBT resilience, outlining the characteristics in LGBT persons who do not experience the negative health disparities. What is LGBT resilience to you? What do you think are the factors that contribute to LGBT resilience? How can we promote LGBT resilience in medicine, law, policy, culture, etc.?
