Objectives: Understanding the role medical librarians play in LGBTQ+ competency for healthcare professionals and what barriers exist to help support this education; understanding what topics about LGBTQ+ competency are taught; discussing how to further support transgender patients and what gaps about LGBTQ+ competency exist
