Abstract

Disparities in health status, health behaviors, and health care access on the basis of sexual orientation have been largely ignored by researchers until recently. Literature reviews in public health, medicine, and nursing note a dearth of studies related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) population and report a disproportionate focus on HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (Bohmer, 2002; Snyder, 2011; Johnson, Smyer, & Yucha, 2012). Meanwhile, inequities in health are on the basis of sexual orientation were recently recognized by health policy makers as a public health priority and targeted for elimination (Institute of medicine, 2011). For example, Healthy People 2020 goals, set by the U.S. federal government to monitor improvements in population health, now include improving "the health, safety, and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals" (United States Department of Health and Human Services)
