Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth experience unique health and developmental challenges compared to their peers. In the first half of this webinar, participants learned about ways in which school-based and other health care providers can support LGBTQ youth in navigating these challenges and improving their health outcomes. The second half of this webinar focused on consent and confidentiality issues related to sexual and reproductive health care, as well as disclosure of sexual orientation and gender identity among LGBTQ minors and young adults. This webinar was a collaboration of the School-Based Health Alliance and the National LGBT Health Education Center.
