This guide has been produced as an output of research undertaken at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, exploring the experiences of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) people affected by cancer.
The lives and health of LGB people have in recent times become more of a focus of attention as societal attitudes have changed. However, despite the recent legal reform and the advances that have been made in UK society, LGB communities still cannot be fully assured that their specific health needs are being addressed and that healthcare is delivered in non-judgemental ways.

In keeping with the principles of the underpinning research, the guide has been devised in collaboration with the participants and their individual voices are present in the recommendations.
