Call for Abstracts
The 2021 Call for Abstracts is now closed.
2021's conference theme, Closing the Gaps, focused on strategies to reduce and eliminate LGBTQ health inequities through expanding access to care, and developing leadership of LGBTQ community members and professionals who belong to multiple minority groups. In this era of global pandemics and political change the disparities within the LGBTQ community have been further magnified. In 2021, GLMA aimed to highlight speakers (including community leaders, researchers, policy makers, and clinicians) who are working to identify, assess, address, and close these gaps. We especially welcomed abstracts pertaining to:
- Research and strategies to improve the health of Black LGBTQIA people and LGBTQIA people of color, Indigenous LGBTQIA people, Two-Spirit individuals, transgender and gender-diverse individuals, sexual minority women, and intersex people.
- The impact of social policies and the political climate on LGBTQIA2S+ health.
- The impact of policing and incarceration on LGBTQIA2S+ health.
- Bisexual+ health.
- LGBTQIA2S+ health, healthcare, and health policy in rural, urban, and international settings.
- The impact of climate change on LGBTQIA2S+ health.
- Community-led LGBTQIA2S+ health initiatives.
Abstracts and proposals addressing this theme were prioritized.
Abstracts were due online by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on April 5, 2021.
In view of Florida's recently passed anti-trans law banning trans girls from playing school sports, and ongoing concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, GLMA's leadership has made the decision that the 39th Annual Conference on LGBTQ Health will be held virtually. The conference was originally planned to be held in-person in Florida. Read our full announcement here.
