The LGBTI Health Summits are an opportunity for individuals working for the health of Wikipedia:intersex, trans, Wikipedia:bisexual, Wikipedia:lesbian and Wikipedia:gay people to meet and share ideas. Attendees are mostly health activists, a mix of medical care professionals, alternative and complementary health providers, outreach workers, volunteers, and other interested parties.

The LGBTI Health Summits grew out of a resurgence in queer health movements which looked beyond a victim deficit based model of disease, using an asset based approach.
