LGBT Policy & Position Statements

Organization policy and position statements are an important tool in advocacy efforts to ameliorate health disparities for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals and to improve the climate for LGBTQ health professionals.

GLMA has developed a Compendium of Health Profession Association LGBTQ Policy & Position Statements, a document which outlines LGBTQ-related policy and position statements issued by health profession associations. The statements relate to LGBTQ individuals, families and communities as well as LGBTQ health professionals.

As a multidisciplinary membership organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of LGBTQ individuals and health professionals, GLMA is proud to have played a role in the development of some of these policy and position statements. It is our hope that additional health profession associations will adopt similar statements and we offer our assistance to those who would like to do so.

We would like to extend our thanks to the American Medical Association (AMA) and the AMA GLBT Advisory Committee for their work in compiling a document that significantly contributed to this resource.

Note: This compendium may not reflect all LGBTQ-related statements from all health profession associations; this compendium is a work-in-progress. Policy and position statements from the American Academy of Physician Assistants are forthcoming.

If you would like to add an organization and/or statement to this list, please contact us.

Organizations listed in the compendium:
American Academy of Family Physicians
American Academy of Nursing
American Academy of Pediatrics
American College of Emergency Physicians
American College of Nurse-Midwives
American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology
American College of Physicians
American Medical Association
American Psychiatric Association
American Psychological Association
American Public Health Association
