This qualitative study of campus sexual violence and its impact on sexual and gender minority students was based on a system-wide campus climate survey conducted in a state university system in the Northeast during the spring of 2019. Comparisons were made between LGBTQ+ students and their straight and cisgender peers that showed cisgender women and transgender and gender expansive students experienced higher rates of violence than their peers who were cisgender men. Sexual minority women who identified as bisexual or pansexual experienced higher rates of violence than their straight, gay, or lesbian peers who also identified as women. Sexual minority men experienced higher rates of violence than straight men. Further analysis discussed the impact of using expansive gender identity demographics and how grouping and analysis can add important nuances to the interpretation of results.
