The purpose of the Network of the National Library of Medicine Beyond the Binary training is to demonstrate how to find culturally sensitive health information resources for Sexual and Gender Minorities (SGM) populations and the librarians who support them. The acronym LGBTQIA+ refers to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning individuals, and others.
This training serves as an introduction to this important topic. After attending, participants will be able to:
- List four key points regarding the health information needs of the LGBTQIA+ community;
- List three concepts for providing a welcoming environment for sexual and gender minorities;
- Identify three resources for providing health information regarding sexual and gender minorities.
