The "A" in LGBTQIA+ was referred to in the video as standing for "ally" but it more appropriately stands for aromantic or asexual. This change has been incorporated in subsequent iterations of the webinar and in the moodle class.

The class aims to provide culturally appropriate health information and resources for LGBTQIA+ populations and the librarians and health care practitioners who support them. We have done our best to use culturally sensitive language and examples recognizing that language on this topic, like gender and sexuality, can be fluid.  Providing access to health information for and about these populations is extremely important.

The topic of gender and LGBTQIA+ issues may be sensitive for some. Social stigma, fear, or rejection is real for many people. It is essential to bring awareness to these issues and create practices around addressing them. This class connects with NNLM initiatives addressing Environmental Determinants of Health and Confronting Health Misinformation.


  1. List 2 resources for LGBTQIA+ terminology
  2. Identify 2 sources of LGBTQIA+ inclusive health information
