Minority Stress, Smoking Patterns, and Cessation Attempts: Findings From a Community-Sample of Transgender Women in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Nicotine Tob Res first published online March 16, 2015doi:10.1093/ntr/ntv066

Research has demonstrated associations between reports of minority stressors and smoking behaviors among lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) populations; however, little is known about how minority stressors are related to smoking behaviors and cessation attempts among transgender women. The purpose of this study was two-fold: 1) to examine the associations between transgender-based discrimination and smoking patterns among a sample of transgender women; and 2) to identify barriers to smoking cessation in a sample of transgender women with a history of smoking.
Smoking cessation may be driven by unique transgender-related minority stressors, such as discrimination. Future research is warranted to address unique stigmatizing contexts when understanding and providing tailored intervention addressing smoking among transgender women.
