Pride in Practice - LGBT Healthcare
It can be all too easy to put off those important health checks, especially when you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or trans. We worry that when we go to the GP, the dentist, the pharmacy, or the optometrist that they will not know how to talk to us about our gender identity or sexual orientation or that we will experience outright discrimination.

Monitoring Sexual Orientation, Gender and Trans Status
Over the last two decades, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) community has seen legislative change which has led to greater acceptance. However, there is still a huge lack of evidence about LGBT people, our needs and experiences. Monitoring sexual orientation, gender identity and trans status is a proven way to address that lack of evidence. Championing sexual orientation and trans status monitoring for service users and staff across all public services is a key an organisational priority for LGBT Foundation. You can read more about our recommended approach and download our guidance to implementing monitoring here.
