A discussion paper that reviews Canada’s contributions to the field of public health, focussing on the failure of interventions aimed at individual behaviours or risk variables to adequately address key determinants of health for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, Two-Spirit, intersex, and queer (LGBTTTIQ) people. Uses the ongoing process of defining new public health goals for Canada to show how an intersectional approach to public health could more effectively address the social determinants of health for LGBTTTIQ people.
