LGBTQ+ Terminology Guide

This document was published in March 2020

A lack of understanding of terminology, or fear of using the wrong language, is a significant, but easy to overcome, barrier to providing good health and care to LGBTQ+ people, both in policy and practice.

When Brook originally approached The National LGB&T Partnership, it was to ask if we had a guide we could signpost them to, so that they could ensure that their services, policies and practices were inclusive of and welcoming to LGBTQ+ people and communities. As we didn’t have a document to signpost them to, we offered to work with them to develop one. We hope that it is of use to you in your work.
