Health, well-being and life conditions of young LGBTI persons in the Nordic countries

A literature review and survey of efforts


Publish date
Despite the fact that life conditions of LGBTI persons in the Nordic countries have changed in the last seventy years, major public health surveys indicate that this group suffers from an increased amount of mental and physical health issues compared to the rest of the population. Younger generations of LGBTI persons see their lives affected, too, by having a sexuality or gender identity that falls outside heteronormativity. The Nordic Council of Ministers, therefore, has initiated a project that aims to shed light on the well-being of young LGBTI persons. Nordic Information on Gender, NIKK, has carried out the project, which has resulted in the report at hand.
