LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL AND TRANSGENDER
SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Special Interest Group (LGBT SIG) was developed to focus on the needs of LGBT individuals struggling with eating disorders and to assist heathcare providers working within the field. One of the SIG's goals includes promoting culturally-competent and diversity-sensitive care for individuals in the LGBT community who struggle with eating disorders. The LGBT SIG advocates for further research, publications, programs and training in regards to LGBT issues and their intersection with the eating disorder field at large.
