#44 | Conor Mahon: Anxiety in Sexual Minorities

On this episode of Sparking Change, Dil is joined by Conor Mahon. Conor is the principal investigator in the Anxiety in Sexual Minorities Study, at DCU.

In this episode, Conor and Dil cover a broad range of topics, including the correlation between social anxiety and sexual orientation, the discrimination that can go on within the LGBTQI+ community, and the issue of internalised homophobia, as well as safety behaviours in response to social anxiety, and how to cope with such behaviours.
