Drinking patterns among Swedish gay men and lesbians (n=1720) are compared to two nationally representative survey groups.
Findings point at elevated levels of drinking among lesbians, but not among gay men.
Gay men and lesbians do not, as in the general population, reduce their drinking with increasing age and there are very few gay and lesbian abstainers.
Experiences of consequences of drinking are more frequent, particularly among lesbians.
The study reveals that alcohol plays a more substantial role at the core of the gay and lesbian community, at least, than in many other subgroups of the Swedish society.
