Out in the World: Prevention & LGBTQ Consumers
Time & Location
About the Event
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) consumers are often underserved by prevention approaches, programs, and strategies, both because of a lack of cultural competence among practitioners and a dearth of prevention services specifically targeting this population. Participants will improve their understanding of LGBTQ consumers and integrate that learning with the science of effective prevention practice. The session will focus on LGBTQ consumers as a specific population for prevention strategies, as well as adaption of general population strategies with a lens to LGBTQ culture.
1. List 3 characteristics of LGBTQ consumers and culture.
2. Identify 2 strategies to increase cultural appropriateness of current prevention strategies.
3. Identify at least 3 targeted strategies to reach LGBTQ consumers.
