This paper examines the ongoing healthcare disparities that the LGB population face and some of the factors that cause them. A review of the minority stress model and its effects on LGB health is thoroughly examined and its relation to patient disclosure of their sexual orientation to their provider. The literature reviewed also includes provider perspectives and recommendations for improving the quality of care. Culturally competent health care is essential to the reduction of healthcare disparities within the LGB population. The research examines the specifics of Colorado LGB patients and their providers. A mixed-methodology survey instrument has been developed to further the literature on 26 to 35-year-old LGB access and utilization of healthcare services
