See Chapter 12 (p 76-81): Supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning and Two-Spirit People.
The LGBTQ2S+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, and Two-Spirit)
community represents a diverse population of sexual and gender minorities. Historically, the health needs of LGBTQ2S+ people have been poorly addressed in the medical system. These needs are as varied and diverse as the individuals themselves, and their intersectional identities. While many LGBTQ2S+ people live in urban areas, many others live in rural areas where there is often even less access to health care.
