A few years ago, I shared findings from a review of research studies in a presentation entitled: “Queer Resilience or Resilient Queers?!” (UK LGBT Health Summit, University of Kent).

Sexuality orientations, identities, attractions and behaviours are never so containable as to be boxed-off by a label; but the labels used by, and of, some people are what necessitate our focus on resilience, for LGB&T+ people, especially in Northern Ireland. What is resilience for them / us? Why do they / we need it? And Who, Where, When and How might Health and Social Care Professionals intentionally promote it across their services?

This presentation, at the 22nd Annual Regional Sexual Health Conference, Northern Ireland, aims to encourage health and social care professionals to make resilience-building, with and for LGB&T+ people in Northern Ireland, an imperative for good practice.
