AbstractLGBTQ+ individuals face barriers in accessing healthcare as a result of discrimination, misunderstanding, and fear. Consequently, many LGBTQ+ individuals do not regularly access appropriate and timely care. Our goal is to create welcoming, safe and informed spaces for LGBTQ+ individuals to reliably access the information and the care that they need. This session explores the health information needs of the LGBTQ+ community and the benefits of LGBTQ+ focused cultural competency/humility. We will identify electronic, print, and other resources for building quality LGBTQ+ health information collections and reference materials. We will discuss ideas for outreach strategies to the LGBTQ+ community.
