This is a bit of a prequel to Christopher's question. The AAMC defined underrepresented minorities (UM) in medicine in 2004 as racial/ethnic groups underrepresented in the medical profession as compared to their numbers in the general population, and they do not currently include LGBT people in this definition. Do you think that LGBT people are or should be considered a UM in medicine? Why or why not? If so, what do you think the potential effects would be on LGBT health or LGBT acceptance?
