Synopsis: Information regarding Canadian Sexual Diversity, LGBTQ news, and related sexuality topics from Canada.

Main Section

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual, and two-spirit (LGBTQIA2) communities in Canada experience numerous health inequities. Health inequities are experienced differently by each of the LGBTQIA2 communities. Still, these communities are generally more likely than heterosexual Canadians to develop mental health disorders, have suicidal thoughts, and attempt suicide.

The Health of LGBTQIA2 Communities In Canada Report of the Standing Committee on Health recommends that the federal government include modules on gender and sexual diversity in training programs for health professionals and sexual health education guidelines. The Committee further recommends that data collection be improved to obtain a complete picture of the health of gender and sexual minorities in Canada; that gender and sexual minorities be consulted, so that federal policies and programs include measures targeting these populations; and that funding for research on the health of LGBTQIA2 communities and funding for LGBTQIA2 organizations be improved.
