The main goal of this study was to investigate the impact of minority stress on the sleep quality and episodic memory performance of LGBTQ+ adults. This was done by collecting data from 70 participants (n = 39 LGBTQ+; n = 31 heterosexual) measuring sleep quality, minority and generalized stress, and episodic memory performance. The results found that generalized stress does act as a mediating variable potentially acting as a mechanism explaining the impact of sleep quality on memory consolidation.
