It's always interesting to see what differences there might be in treatment and screening for older adults based on their background and environment. In terms of the LGBT community, Clinical Geriatrics published an article discussing the specific needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender adults. IF you're interested in knowing more about this specific community, feel free to read through the article at http://www.clinicalgeriatrics.com/articles/Addressing-Needs-Older-Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-and-Transgender-Adults
