Introduction to LGBTQ health for service providers

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 - 13:00 to 16:00


Cost: $15
Refreshments provided. Accessible space.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer people have many of the same health concerns as anyone else, but cultural differences and the impact of homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia mean that these health needs may be experienced quite differently. LGBTQ people also do not have the same access to health care that many others take for granted, as they often face barriers when attempting to access health care.

This session is aimed for Service Providers: Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers and Frontline Staff.

Here are the ways service providers can register:
1. Register online at:
2. email for a registration form

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
