The LGBT community has been the earliest adopters of technology, and in the last few years, we've seen tech-savvy consumers transform into trailblazing entrepreneurs. From introducing new modalities for STI testing and treatment to HIV prevention research and education, digital health innovators have leveraged technology to solve the problems that exist within its community. The inclusiveness of the LGBT community has given it an early mover advantage, and this panel will discuss how the characteristics of this community can be a beacon for diversity in technology.
