Welcome to the Sexuality, Health, and INtersectional Experiences (SHINE) Lab at UConn!
The SHINE Lab focuses on understanding health disparities among sexual and gender diverse (SGD) youth and adults. Our research explores relationships between sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), ethnoracial identity, family experiences, school contexts, and health outcomes (e.g., sexual health, substance use, disordered eating) among SGD populations.
