This study explored the relations between LGBTQ-specific parental support and depressive symptoms. A strong association between LGBTQ-specific parental support and depressive symptoms among LGBTQ youth of color were found. Also, transgender and genderqueer participants reported less LGBTQ-specific parental support than their cisgender counterparts, and non-monosexual participants reported less LGBTQ-specific parental support than their monosexual counterparts. As for depressive symptoms, individuals who identified as Native American and Latinx, non-monosexual, and transgender and genderqueer, reported higher levels of depressive symptoms.
