An Ally's Guide to Terminology

MAKE NO MISTAKE, WORDS HAVE POWER.

Using the correct terminology when talking to and about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people and other sexual and gender minorities has a powerful impact on health outcomes, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and creating a welcoming environment. 

GLAAD created a short guide to review essential vocabulary: An Ally's Guide to Terminology

If you work in healthcare, we suggest you review this Guide, share it with your colleagues, and post it in a shared space.
