≪Organizer Abstract≫
Research into sexuality and gender minority groups is required to enhance health, education and psychological professionals, commissioners and policy makers' understandings of the specific needs of LGBT people. This knowledge and information differs across cultures and disciplines. Such cultural nuances are interesting and are expected to inform further developments, resulting in social and political improvement. In this symposium, we have several presenters who have researched LGBT people from various perspectives, including: the coming-out experiences in sexual minorities and their parents in England, the experiences of an Australian female-to-male, and the recognition and exploration of vocabulary related to sexual and gender diversity in Japan. These presenters will make cases regarding how we can help to address any outstanding problems and overlooked areas. Through this discussion, it is hoped that we will contribute to providing both theoretical and practical insights into the issues affecting LGBT people across the different countries.
