In Phase 1 of this study we used focus groups to establish the cultural appropriateness and
acceptability of the targeted elements of the intervention for the LGBT population. For
Phase 2 of this study, we seek to enroll 400 participants in a randomized controlled trial
of the targeted intervention vs. a non-targeted, comparison condition. Both conditions will
consist of group counseling sessions combined with nicotine replacement therapy and peer
support. We expect that quit rates, stage of readiness, perceived benefits, self-efficacy,
and treatment adherence will be higher among those who received the targeted intervention
than those in the non-targeted intervention. Furthermore, we expect that a stronger LGBT
cultural identification and salience of that identity will be associated with more
satisfaction and adherence to the targeted intervention.
