Image Presentation Slides (PDF: 626KB / 40 slides)


Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Minnesotans experience significant health disparities when compared with non-LGBTQ residents. However, because most health research does not ask about sexual orientation or gender identity, LGBTQ health disparities have remained relatively invisible until recently. This session will present results of the first-ever statewide LGBTQ health survey. This presenter, representing the only organization collecting health data on LGBTQ community in Minnesota, will teach participants ways to effectively advocate for LGBTQ health.
