More than 10 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons live in the United States. Improving their health is a public health priority. LGBT persons have specific health concerns and face health care disparities. Awareness of those issues and disparities can enable dermatologists to provide medically appropriate and culturally competent care to LGBT patients. This review highlights terminology important in caring for LGBT persons, LGBT demographics in the United States, health care disparities faced by LGBT persons, and approaches to caring for LGBT patients.
