LGBTQ+ people have always needed to be our own healthcare advocates, and today is no different. Our community experiences health challenges at increased rates as a result of higher risk behaviors, which are caused in part by social and cultural experiences with discrimination, minority stress, and familial homophobia/transphobia. These higher risk behaviors lead to worsened health outcomes if we don't take our health into our own hands!
Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center believes that LGBTQ+ people deserve health equity: the attainment of the highest levels of health and wellness available today. In that spirit, the center develops leading-edge health promotion programs focused on eliminating health disparities related to tobacco, cancer, HIV, and COVID-19 within the Lehigh Valley's LGBTQ+ community. We also provide critical on-site supportive services for the LGBTQ+ community. Lastly, we promote structural change that will lead to improved health and wellness for the LGBTQ+ community.
Our health programs are informed by data, community need, and service gaps in the region.
