One of the keys to good health care is being open with your health care provider. Doctors, nurses, physician assistants, psychotherapists and other professionals treating you need to know about your LGBTQ identity to give the best care possible. Yet surveys consistently show bisexual (or those with similar identities, including queer, pansexual or fluid) people are far less likely to disclose their sexual orientation to any medical professional. This guide is designed to help those who are bisexual, pansexual, queer, sexually fluid or similar in navigating complicated conversations in a medical setting.
