The plus respectfully represents other identities not listed such as two-spirit, pansexual, intersex, asexual, gender nonconforming. We share knowledge about relevant clinical practices and approaches needed to serve and support members of the LGBTQ+ communities and create space for dialogue about how differences with regard to gender and sexuality affect self-determination, overall physical health,   behavioral health, and well­-being.
