Objectives

          A study was done to determine the effects of sexual orientation on occupational performance of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders. Respondents were asked to accomplish a questionnaire to know their health and well-being, assess their participation competence at home, work and in the community, and recognize occupational injustices, stigma and discrimination they have experienced. Perceptions of LGBT and non-LGBT occupational therapists who have managed LGBT and non-LGBT clients were also determined. Respondent's preference or current sexual orientation does not affect his occupational performance. , injustices and other forms of discrimination were experienced by the respondents from time to time but they will not discrimination to define them. The LGBT therapist can connect and engage with non- LGBT clients more than the LGBT clients. Respect is the best therapeutic use of self-approach for communicating and establishing good rapport among LGBT clients. Occupational therapy is concerned with promoting health and well-being which includes the sexual minority. In order to establish good rapport and trust with an LGBT client, sexuality must be addressed. This would also be a good basis for intervention and selection of gender-preferred activities.
