Minority sexuality (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer – GLBTQ) persons and, specifically, minority sexuality athletes report challenges in accessing mental health care professionals and report dissatisfaction with their professional counselling experiences. The specific issue addressed in this study was ‘What practices facilitate conversations about sexuality between GLBTQ or minority sexuality athletes and counsellors or psychologists?’
