Addressing the attitudes of staff working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people is important for inclusive older age health and social care. International research suggests religious beliefs can inform some care providers’ negative attitudes towards LGBTQ people. This has not yet been researched in the UK. Engaging with key stakeholders, while essential, can be fraught with tensions and challenges. This article describes a recent UK project which did so, using diverse consultation techniques, including a World Café. The importance of networking and collaborative methodologies in intersectional research is discussed, together with the implications for promoting LGBTQ-inclusive care.
