Any healthcare provider who wants to learn how to provide more culturally competent care to the LGBTQ community will greatly benefit from this session. The following topics will be discussed during this session: LGBTQ+ terminology; the difference between sex and gender identity and at what age each can present; issues LGBTQ people face, including coming out, premature disclosure, internalized trans and homophobia; and how to help a patient or colleague feel comfortable coming out to you. The participant will also learn how to create a welcoming environment for their LGBTQ+ identified patients.

At the conclusion of this session, providers will be able to:
1.    Describe how to set the stage for a patient or colleague to come out without prematurely outing them.
2.    List healthcare issues LGBTQ people are at higher risk for.
3.    Discuss how to create a clinical environment welcoming to the LGBTQ community.
