Limited evidence supports higher rates of alcohol use and alcohol-related problems among sexual minority persons than heterosexuals. Prediction models for alcohol use were not improved by using sexual orientation and psychological distress as interaction terms. Future research should examine the underlying causes of impaired health in the older LGB population. Those findings should be used to research methods of preventing and minimizing alcohol misuse.
