The 8th Annual National LGBT Health Awareness Week runs from March 28th to April 3rd. This web site is a resource for organizations and individuals to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) health and to improve their own health.
This year the theme of LGBT Health Awareness Week is Closing the Gap. 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. We need to educate ourselves and our health care providers about our unique health needs as well as our health risks. We need to commit to closing the gap, because everyone deserves good health!
