Lesbian Health: What are the Issues?
Phyllis Noerager Stern
Taylor & Francis, 1993 - Social Science - 151 pages
The sexual orientation of lesbians is just one factor in their lives, yet providers of healthcare often assume everyone is heterosexual and counsel their clients accordingly. This book contains a series of scientific investigations by leading authorities in the field into multiple problems lesbians face when seeking healthcare. Should lesbians disclose their sexual orientation? Can it be kept of the record? Where can lesbians go if they feel unable to trust traditional medicine and what is the history of the scientific and medical community towards lesbians? How are lesbians viewed by college students today? Lesbians are treated in this book as women first; their sexual orientation is just one factor in their lives.
