Objectives: To investigate associations between sexual identity and low leisure-time physical activity (LTPA). Study design: Cross-sectional study. Methods: The 2012 public health survey was conducted with a postal questionnaire in southern Sweden with 28,029 respondents, aged 18–80 years. Analyses were conducted with logistic regressions. Results: The prevalence of low LTPA among men and women were as follows: 13.9% and 12.3% among heterosexuals, 26.1% and 18.5% among bisexuals, 19.5% and 15.6% among homosexuals, 26.6% and 18.5% among others. Bisexual men and women and other men had higher odds ratio of low LTPA than heterosexuals in the final models, whereas gay and lesbian participants did not differ. Conclusions: The results should guide health promotion and prevention. © 2020 The Authors
