Community Health Webinar Series | April 29, 2021
Presentation Titles: 2SLGBTQ
What does it mean to be a member of the lesbian, gay, transgender, bi, queer, two-spirit community? Two-spirit is a concept with a long historical legacy in Indian Country. LGTBQ-2S members of our community face misconceptions and stigma that can be life-threatening. Community understanding and open, affirming medical care is important. The LGBTQ-Two Spirit population has unique healthcare needs, is at greater risk for multiple health threats, and often experiences low-quality care due to various factors, including discrimination. All people should receive health services formulated to address their particular circumstances and meet their individual needs.
