The aim of this group is to deal with the social and professional problems that confront medical professionals who are gay, lesbian or bisexual and to address issues of prejudice and fear that exist within the medical community towards gay colleagues and patients. Monthly meetings vary from open rap sessions to potluck get-togethers, fostering a feeling of cohesiveness and support.
