Description & Learning Objectives
After completing this learning experience you should be able to define LGBTQ and gender identity, to identify three risk factors faced by LGBTQ youth, to identify three ways to be more inclusive of LGBTQ youth when providing healthcare services, to apply STI screening recommendations for this population, and finally, to introduce resources for LGBTQ youth and their families.
Case based presentation:
The first case, we introduce a 17-year-old male who presents with urethral discharge. When you take a private history, he admits that he’s been having sex with both boys and girls.
The second case, is a 12-year-old assigned female at birth who identifies as a male and asks that male pronouns be used along with a typically male name. He dresses as a boy, and has his hair cut in a typically male style. His parents thought that he would outgrow this, but instead he is becoming more insistent.
