In Reply We appreciate Blosnich and colleagues’ interest in our study.1 Blosnich and colleagues highlight several key challenges in the field of sexual orientation and gender identity (SO/GI) data collection in emergency department settings. We thank them for their critical engagement with the methodological challenges of SO/GI data analysis and hope to clarify our intent and to provide further research considerations for advancing the field.
