LGBTQIA+ Health

Health Tab

In this guide, LGBTQIA stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual. The plus sign (+) at the end of LGBTQIA stands for the many sexual and gender minority identities beyond LGBTQIA. People who identify as LGBTQIA+ are often discriminated against and mistreated, both in the healthcare setting and in the broader society. The stress of these experiences can lead to health problems. It can also cause some LGBTQIA+ people to avoid the healthcare system altogether. The resources on this page can help LGBTQIA+ individuals find welcoming healthcare providers and maintain overall well-being.
