The article explores the state of healthcare for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Great Britain. According to the author, teaching heterosexuality and gender normativity results in LGBT becoming add-ins so it is important to approach LGBT healthcare with a different model. In developing policies for LGBT healthcare, the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Advisory Group and the Department of Health collaborated for its better delivery.
