It is now well accepted that LGBTQIA+ individuals are at considerable risk of experiencing many forms of trauma that can profoundly impact physical and mental health. This lecture outlines an LGBTQIA+ minority stress model and how discrimination and prejudice can leave LGBTQIA+ individuals particularly vulnerable to the impact of trauma.

CTSG Visiting Research Fellow for June 2023 – Annukka Lahti

Annukka Lahti is an Academy of Finland postdoctoral fellow at the University of Eastern Finland, Finland. The interrelations of intimacy, power, sexuality, gender and affect are at the heart of her research inquiry. She has studied them from queer theoretical and affect theoretical, and recently posthuman perspectives. She has published studies on affective inequalities and intimacies, queer and heterosexual relationship contexts, singlehood and LGBTIQ+ breakups. In her PhD research, she developed a queer psychosocial approach to the study of bisexuality in relationships. Thereafter, she worked as the principal investigator on a project studying sexual harassment in Finnish competitive sports. In 2020, she began her postdoctoral project on Finnish LGBTIQ+ separations, funded by the Finnish Kone Foundation. Currently, she is exploring LGBTIQ+ separations in two different cultural locations in the Academy of Finland-funded project Where the rainbow ends: the becoming of LGBTIQ+ separations (project 349408).
