Tim Collins on why gayborhoods might be hurting LGBTQ people
Incoming faculty member Tim Collins was recently interviewed by Rewire magazine on his October article in Social Science & Medicine describing how same-sex partners suffer greater cancer risks from hazardous air pollutants. The study showed both that same-sex couples see higher risks nationwide, and that living in enclaves with higher numbers of gay couples, or gayborhoods, is itself associated with greater risks. The precise findings were that same-sex partners have a 12.3% greater cancer risk and 23.8% greater respiratory risk than heterosexual partners.
