Abstract

This article introduces the news problems that are associated with repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. Men who have sex with men (MSM), the largest proportion of LGB service members, represent a segment of the population with the highest risks for disparities in primary care with regard to sexual health and mental health disorders. Aditionally, the article reviews available research about this military population, in addition to a review of specific health care needs of the MSM patient in order to aid the primary care provider with screening, testing, and counseling.
