Members of the LGBTQ+ community have unique health needs and risks to be aware of to stay healthy. In addition to risks that affect all men and women regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, such as heart disease and cancer, people in the LGBTQ+ community may face certain higher physical and mental health risks.
Fear of discrimination and lack of health insurance coverage prevent many community members from seeking care. Finding a provider that understands the needs of the LGBTQ+ community can also be a frustrating and negative experience.
