PEREZ, Glòria et al. Health and health-related behaviors according to sexual attraction and behavior. Gac Sanit [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.2, pp.135-138. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2014.07.013.

Objective: to Describe perceived health, mental health and certain health-related behaviors according to sexual attraction and behavior in the population residing in Barcelona in 2011. Methods: Perceived health, mental health, chronic conditions and health-related behaviors were analyzed in 2675 people aged 15 to 64 years. The Barcelona Health Survey for 2011 was used, which included questions on sexual attraction and behavior. Multivariate robust Poisson regression models were fitted to obtain adjusted prevalence ratios. Results: People feeling same-sex attraction reported a higher prevalence of worse perceived and mental health. These people and those who had had sex with persons of the same sex more frequently reported harmful health-related behaviors. Conclusions: Lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual people may have health problems that should be explored in depth, prevented, and attended.
