A public health crisis like the coronavirus can cause uncertainty and stress for people of all ages and identities. For our LGBTQ young people who are already at greater risk of anxiety, depression and negative health outcomes, this unpredictability pertaining to the virus can exacerbate the challenges youth already face. Added to these new ways of being is their sudden navigation of virtual schooling. The social distancing and isolation necessary to stop the spread of the virus can also increase feelings of loneliness and the need for the support that so many LGBTQ youth experience.
