Part 2: LGBTQ healthcare needs – a community discussion

This Tuesday, we hosted a panel with providers and organizers who center queer and trans communities in their work. Our panel discussion developed so beautifully that we didn’t have time for our planned break-out groups.

We still really value community feedback and would like to hold space for small-group discussion about what LGBTQ healthcare justice looks like in Pierce County. We will hold Part II: LGBTQ Community Health Needs on Wednesday, June 6th from 6-7:30PM at the Rainbow Center.

We will come together to discuss our health experiences as LGBTQ people inside and outside of care systems, with an emphasis on the experiences and needs of people of color, trans and non-binary people, disabled folks, and folks who are uninsured, underinsured, or Medicaid beneficiaries. We hope to bring together providers and people who receive (or are seeking) services for a candid, pro-active dialogue.
