Abstract

Little research has been conducted to explore the impact of intersectionality among racial/ethnic minority groups and sexual/gender minority groups as it relates to violent, sexual, and stalking victimization risk. Using minority stress theory and routine activities-lifestyle exposure theory as a guide, the current study seeks to add to the literature by identifying risk factors for violent, sexual, and stalking victimization among a national sample of college students, while also exploring the intersections of race/ethnicity and sexual/gender minority status and how they may influence risk. Findings show that being a LGBTQ + student increases victimization risk similarly for White students and racial/ethnic minority students. There are differences and similarities across victimization risk factors among these groups.
