This article aims to identify the experiences of discrimination among and the perceived priorities for the health of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans (LGBT) people in Puerto Rico (PR). Data were collected during the 2013 LGBT Pride Parade in San Juan, using a brief self-administered survey and discrimination due to sexual orientation/gender identity was most frequently reported to have occurred in school settings. The paper concludes that the experiences of discrimination among LGBT people in PR were consistent across age groups and sexual orientation/gender identity.
