To The Editor The Viewpoint by Dr Zaza and colleagues1 on US lesbian, gay, or bisexual (ie, sexual minority) high school students and their health-related behaviors represents “an important starting point” by describing understudied communities at risk for poor health. However, there are limitations in the Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS) worthy of comment.
