People who take care of us need to know how to take care of us.
Let's Map + Expand LGBT Health Services in NJ!
Garden State Equality and community partners are taking on one of the greatest civil rights challenges of our time: making sure health services actually meet the needs of LGBT people.
Finding LGBT-Sensitive Health Services is a Challenge.
LGBT people need doctors, therapists, and other direct services like anybody else. Our health needs are an everyday part of our lives—and we’re not equal until we can be sure that when we go to a provider, that professional is sure to say the right things to us, ask the right questions, and provide us the comfort and care we need. LGBT organizations are forever putting together lists of LGBT sensitive providers—but we shouldn’t need to find our doctors on special lists.
How We Can Fix It:
We’re going to find the health service providers who treat us with the most respect, and literally map out where they are in the state. We’re going to get in touch with all of them, and—doctors, therapists, other direct service providers, and activists working together—figure out what policy changes and advocacy efforts we need to make sure all health service providers treat us with respect.
