Nathaniel Frank, founder and editor of the "What We Know" Research Portal, an initiative of Cornell University's Center for the Study of Inequality, argues in the Washington Post that evidence of a link between anti-LGBT discrimination and health harms is robust and well-supported.

"In a trio of cases heard in October, the Supreme Court weighed whether discrimination against LGBT people should be legal," Frank writes in his op-ed. "Over the course of those and related cases, a handful of scholars who oppose legal protections for LGBT Americans claimed in a legal brief that 'research about discrimination and its effects' on LGBT people is 'deficient and the claims based on it unsupported.'"
