National LGBT Health Week: March 22-26

THEME: OUT for Equity

The National Coalition for LGBT Health is proud to announce this year’s National LGBT Health Awareness Week. The 19th annual LGBT Health Awareness Week is March 22 – 26, 2021. The Week’s theme is OUT for Equity.  This theme arises from a word cloud of responses from the Coalition’s Inaugural State of LGBTQ Health National Survey. This first-of-its-kind survey, slated for release the week of April 5, focuses on the current state of LGBT health as reported by more than 700 survey respondents including providers, health systems administrators, and consumers.

To further recognize the National LGBT Health Awareness Week 2021, the Coalition will host two webinars. The first webinar is focused on training a new generation of providers on LGBTQ+ health and the second on addressing the challenges of PrEP access and uptake. The Coalition will also promote awareness of LGBT health disparities on social media.

Please join us and help raise awareness for LGBT health!
