This chapter considers sexual orientation as an issue of social difference in relation to death, dying, and bereavement. It explores the experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities within palliative care to argue that these groups are disenfranchised within particular socio-cultural norms of what it means to experience end of life loss. It argues that a more open and flexible response is required from practitioners to allow people their unique narrative.
