The invisible elderly: lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender older adults.

Jablonski RA, Vance DE, Beattie E.

Abstract
More than 2 million older adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). The purpose of this article is to present an overview of the physical and mental health needs of LGBT older adults to sensitize nurses to the specific needs of this group. Nurses are in a prominent position to create health care environments that will meet the needs of this invisible, and often misunderstood, group of people.
