Society and nursing are build upon heterosexuality. A literature study shows that lesbians are, stay and feel invisible in interaction with nurses. It is imparative to strengthen the trust, acknowledgement and knowledge in this interaction.

If the nurses meet the lesbians in a hermeneutic and thereby an open manner they get the opportunity to understand and to bring forward their understanding. Showing this understanding gives the lesbians the feeling of acceptance because their identity and lifestyle are recognized and acknowledged.
