An Intervention for Clinical Medical Students on LGBTI Health (2013):
There is currently a paucity of medical training in caring for the needs of LGBTI adolescents.
Specifically, less than half of all medical schools teach students about health concerns
specific to LGBTI adolescents and, when these health concerns are taught,
they are primarily discussed in preclinical curricula.

Overall, the study found that gay applicants were 40 percent less likely to be granted an interview than their heterosexual counterparts. "The results indicate that gay men encounter significant barriers in the hiring process because, at the initial point of contact, employers more readily disqualify openly gay applicants than equally qualified heterosexual applicants," writes the study's author, András Tilcsik of Harvard University.

Launch of Healthy People 2020, USA (2010): Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health: Goal - Improve the health, safety, and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals. - Overview - LGBT individuals encompass all races and ethnicities, religions, and social classes. Sexual orientation and gender identity questions are not asked on most national or State surveys, making it difficult to estimate the number of LGBT individuals and their health needs. Research suggests that LGBT individuals face health disparities linked to societal stigma, discrimination, and denial of their civil and human rights. Discrimination against LGBT persons has been associated with high rates of psychiatric disorders,1 substance abuse,2, 3 and suicide.4 Experiences of violence and victimization are frequent for LGBT individuals, and have long-lasting effects on the individual and the community.5 Personal, family, and social acceptance of sexual orientation and gender identity affects the mental health and personal safety of LGBT individuals.6.

Semp D (2007). A Public Silence: Sexual Orientation and Mental Health Services (Word Download N/A: Was made to disappear?). So, if discrimination related to sexual orientation is directly connected to mental health problems for some MSM, then how well do mental health services address this issue?... . Further some participants were unable to disclose their sexuality in mental health services even though they considered it central to their mental health problems. This was the case for the two youngest men interviewed. Daniel explained how a medical and symptom based approach was a barrier to discussing his issues regarding his sexuality... They reported that staff generally do not ask clients about sexual orientation and they gave various reasons for this. One barrier to asking about sexuality is the perceived dominance of the medical model... This focus on ‘mental illness’ reduces the chance that staff may see conversations about sexual orientation as important or relevant to their work. Instead, the medical model requires them to focus primarily on symptoms and diagnosis... Yet, homosexuality is marginalised, often remaining unacknowledged. Thus, when homosexuality is omitted for MSM it is not just their sexual behaviour that is ignored; rather, many other aspects of their lives are also ignored such as their relationships, important aspects of identity, and their experience of homonegative trauma... - Semp, David (2006).

Gay life expectancy revisited: "The aim of our research was never to spread more homophobia, but to demonstrate to an international audience how the life expectancy of gay and bisexual men can be estimated from limited vital statistics data. In our paper, we demonstrated that in a major Canadian centre, life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 21 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality continued, we estimated that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years would not reach their 65th birthday." - Does homosexual activity shorten life?

Lesbian and bisexual women’s health research (Australia)
is a rapidly growing area. Small community-based research projects
involving these women have been underway since the 1980s. Increasingly,
over the last decade, larger population-based research has been
conducted. One of the current challenges is that questions on sexual
orientation and gender identity are not yet included in routine
demographics of most major national research and census data
collection. Their inclusion would provide important local information
about the health of same sex attracted women compared with their
heterosexual peers. Known completed projects and publications are
included here. There are many projects underway in Australia, which are
not yet included: Download Page For Many Documents & Reports.
The Transgender Wars: "The primary problem of transgendered people, and all those who don't fit the man/woman straitjacket, is not so much about accepting their identity, but about coping with how society violently enforces gender norms... Instead, her parents kicked her out of the house. She was thrown out of school, and had to live on the street. When she turned her first trick she was robbed and raped. Later, underground surgery, the equivalent of a botched backroom abortion, left her unable to breathe or talk properly. Is it her problem, or ours?

The tyranny of the gender binary - "There must only be two genders" and the harm done to all who are born inviolation violate socially learned beliefs - Sunday Times Magazine, October, 2001 - The worse of both worlds (2 parts): "How would you feel if you'd grown up thinking you were a girl and discovered at 20 that, genetically, you were a man? ..But in the West since the 1950s, standard medical procedure for treating children born with ambiguous genitalia has been to assign them a gender quickly to avoid ridicule and rejection... Surgeons, geneticists, endocrinologists and clinical psychologists form a team to decide, usually within a few days, what sex the child is to be designated. The rationale is that parents must be told as quickly as possible to prevent them from rejecting the child. This medical response is based on the assumption that normality is essential for parental and social acceptance and happiness."

Many have been kicked out of their homes because they are gay, only to find themselves trapped in life on the street where the only rules that apply are doing whatever it takes to survive: even if it means selling their bodies in order to do so.

The number of homeless teenagers is growing, Siciliano says, inadvertently fueled by the identity-affirming pitch of gay rights advocates and the feel-good wit of television shows like "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and "Will and Grace," which encourage adolescents to declare their sexuality to parents, who often respond by throwing them out..." - Young, Gay and Homeless. - Homeless Queer Youth: "Queer street youth may have difficulty accessing services to obtain food, shelter, social services and medical attention. When they are able to access these services, many queer youth find that they do not adequately meet their needs. Physicians, mental health professionals, and social workers often assume that the adolescents they work with are heterosexual. Once a queer young person realizes that this assumption has been made, s/he is unlikely to reveal that s/he is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. If the adolescent does not reveal her/his sexual orientation, service providers may be unable to accurately assess that individual’s needs and provide appropriate information and services." - Young, gay, homeless and invisible: a growing population? - At-Risk LGBTQ Youth Population Lack Education, Job and Medical Options.

These themes were developed in more depth in the interview to reveal institutional heterosexism and structural barriers to teachers discourse on LGB pupils. The data was organised into the following themes; ‘Gender roles and families’, ‘Moral Panic’, ‘Institutional heterosexism’. The study revealed that whilst teachers aimed to treat all pupils alike they did so by treating them as though they were heterosexual. As a consequence, teachers seemed to lack the language to talk about different sexual orientations..."

Status of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Persons in Sociology (2002):
"At the request of the American Sociological Association (ASA), the
Committee on the Status of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered
(LGBT) Persons in Sociology conducted an investigation... First, while
graduate student responses to closed-ended questions reveal a moderate
degree of satisfaction with their graduate training and with the social
and academic culture of their program, open-ended responses suggest a
significant degree of academic and social isolation... Fourth, there
has been a significant increase in the visibility of LGBT scholarship
in the various professional outlets of the discipline since the early
1990s... As is the case for other marginalized groups who seek both
social recognition as well as opportunities to engage in scholarship
regarding the nature of the group, the status of LGBT persons in
sociology is complicated and in flux. On the one hand, LGBT scholarship
in its various forms is getting increased attention. On the other hand,
that attention is quite limited: relatively few papers appear to make
it into journals (see text Table below), journal publishing tends to be
limited to a few journals..." - Changing the Face of Medical Education to Improve Care to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Patients. - Readings on Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals in Higher Education.
Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and the Transgendered in Political Science: Report on a Discipline-Wide Survey (2010, Full Text):
This article reviews the results of a discipline-wide survey concerning
lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and the transgendered in the discipline. We
find that both research and teaching on LGBT topics have made some
headway into the discipline, and that political scientists largely
accept that LGBT issues can be fundamentally political and are worth
studying and teaching for that reason. Nonetheless, troubling questions
about discrimination both against those who conduct research concerning
LBGT issues and LGBT individuals themselves remain.

Excerpt revealing the common anti-gay attitudes of deans of Social Work: "I remember one of my friends overheard several of the male deans at a social work Dean's meeting communicating with each other saying, 'The lesbians are taking over the field.' I am sure there is still plenty going on underground, as you can imagine. For instance five or six years ago there was a concerted, but rather quiet effort led by some of the deans to keep homosexuality out of the Council on Social Work Education guidelines." (p. 66)
