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

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