Health care is a universal need; however, some people do not receive quality care because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Sometimes they are referred to as the “hidden population.”
People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) may face discrimination, social stigma and denial of civil and human rights. Hospitals and doctors’ offices are places where this should never happen. When it does, it can lead to depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other unhealthy behaviors, even suicide.
