Healthcare Bill of Rights

"What rights do LGBT people have right now when you go see a healthcare provider? Do hospitals prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity? Can you get help designating someone to make health decisions if you canít? Find out these and more answers in The Healthcare Bill of Rights.

LGBT people suffer from stigma related health issues like smoking or mental health problems. When we fear a chilly welcome we avoid doctors, which means we also don't get well-person care like cancer screenings. The first step in breaking this chain is getting LGBT people in regular healthcare; this tool can help you be confident of your rights."

The website has a list of your rights (wallet print out) and directory of LGBT inclusive healthcare providers.
