While increasing attention has been focused in recent years on how gender and race can influence important issues such as retention in physics, relatively fewer studies have appeared regarding the impact of LGBT+ identity.  Relying on an intersectional approach, I will discuss some of these issues based in part on my own experiences as a trans woman in physics who transitioned mid-career, as well as a recent paper reporting the results of the first major climate survey of LGBT+ physicists [1].  Particular focus will be paid to reducing harm from and discouraging harassment and exclusion for early career folks.
