Cardiovascular Health Associations with Minority Stress: Behavioral Evaluations and Self-Reported Sociopsychological Outcomes by SOGI Status (CHAMBERS)In CARDIA Year 35 exam: Assess whether sexual minority and gender minority (SGM) individuals in CARDIA have increased odds of objectively-determined traditional cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and poorer CVD outcomes compared to their non-SGM counterparts. Determine whether self and/or perceived SGM stigmas associate with minority stress theory linked psychosocial or behavioral CVD risk and outcomes in cross-section and over time. Determine the role of structural SGM stigma on CVD risk factors and outcomes among SGM CARDIA participants by measuring attitudes toward SGM individuals at the community level.
