It’s LGBT Health Awareness Week. This year’s theme: Closing the Gap. Why? Because the LGBT community has, on average, worse health outcomes and less access to the care we need than the straight community. We cannot afford to ignore the gap anymore. (And this is a great reminder to send that census form back….)
Check out the Expect More fact sheets on issues ranging from health care access to transmen’s and transwomen’s health to youth policy. And kudos to the National Coalition for LGBT Health and the excellent policy and access work they do, often behind the scenes.
