Women who are neither heterosexual nor lesbian-identified have traditionally been ignored in research and healthcare practice. Yet, recent research evidence indicates that these women have significant health inequities in areas of mental health, substance use, physical health and sexual health. Reasons for these inequities are not clear, although hypotheses include greater marginalisation and social isolation, and an absence of a unifying activist voice. Emerging literature indicates that these women are a disparate group with few unifying features, and varied sexual attraction, behaviour and identity.
