Title:Smoking in the LGBT population
Author(s):Merchant, Azmeen
Subject(s):Smoking
tobacco
LGBT

Abstract:My research project explored how smokign relates to gay culture at UIUC and in the C-U area. According to federal statistics, smoking is more common within the LGBT population, and I am interested in how gay culture and bar culture at UIUC influences this trend, as well as reasons why they pick up smoking in the first place.
