GLMA: Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality
GLMA: Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality is an organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) health professionals whose mission is to ensure equality in
healthcare for LGBT individuals and healthcare professionals. GLMA uses the medical and health expertise of its members in public policy and advocacy, professional education, patient education and
referrals, and the promotion of research to improve the health and well-being of LGBT people. Founded in 1981 in part to advocate for policy and services to address the then growing health crisis that would
become the HIV/AIDS epidemic, GLMA's mission has since broadened to
address the full range of health issues experienced by LGBT people.
