Considering the absence of position paper for lesbians, gays, and bisexual individuals for psychologists in Hong Kong and the emerging voice of sexual equality worldwide, a group of psychologists started a work group in 2011 and drafted the Position Paper for Psychologists Working with Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexual (LGB) Individuals in 2012. In this presentation, the background of how the Position Paper was developed, and the obstacles and changes in the work group, the psychologists and the general public after the implementation of the Position Paper will be discussed.
