Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This historical qualitative research about the development and early advocacy of the Network for LGBTQIA+ Concerns in OT (formerly Network for LGB Concerns in OT) resulted in themes of confronting the profession, coming out, and changing practice. Researchers analyzed data from primary archival documents, oral histories, and one focus group of Network members. Implications for future research and the OT profession (education and practice) will be discussed.
