While most LGBTI people live relatively healthy, a disproportionate number use alcohol and other drugs. This can be due to the fact that LGBTI people experience additional stressors in their lives, including homophobia, discrimination and violence. When drinking alcohol or taking drugs, it’s important to know your limits and look out for your friends.
