124515 - Understanding LGBTIQ

  • : Online

LGBTIQ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer or questioning. However we acknowledge that even this acronym has many variations and does not cover all sexually and gender diverse people. Dr Milton Diamond stated 'Nature loves diversity, society hates it'. Society tries to create boxes and labels which people can conveniently fit into. But people are so much more diverse than boxes and labels.

Relevance to General Practice

Many of those who work within the health profession have the desire to practise inclusively, to use the right terminology and to be accepting of sexual and gender diversity – but don’t feel they have the knowledge, skills or confidence to do this. 

This course provides an overview of the key concepts for people working with LGBTIQ individuals.
