This lecture will weave together the histories of LGBTQ+ health and its coverage in the news media. The past few decades have seen significant advancements in health equity for LGBTQ+ populations, as both medicine and journalism each learn to better address and serve the community. At the same time, the general public has depended on these institutions in tandem to advance knowledge, inclusion, and health justice for LGBTQ+ people.



1) Review the evolution of LGBTQ+ health in medical institutions, including understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity, and issues in medical education, research, and clinical care.

2) Track the history of non-medical news media as it has covered LGBTQ+ health issues, from the AIDS crisis to the current push for health equity.

3) Reconcile these histories and understand the interplay between healthcare and media  and how they have at times lagged behind and other times pushed one another to better address the needs of LGBTQ+ patients.



The NYU Grossman School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
