The Pride Study

Stanford University of Medicine & University of California, San Francisco
PRIDEnet is a national network of individuals and organizations that actively engage LGBTQ communities. The PRIDE Study is the first long-term national health study of LGBTQ+ people. By participating in the study over time, participants’ unique stories provide vital insights on the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ people in the United States.

The main question we want to explore over many years is: how does being LGBTQ+ influence physical, mental, or social health? By participating in the study, you bring us one step closer to understanding how the experience of being LGBTQ+ relates to all aspects of health and well-being. Learn more about participation at
