WATCH: LGBTQIA+ Community Voices: Reflections on healthcare experiences

July 2, 2020

In honor of Pride month, the SGM Health Equity Initiative hosted a conversation with members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and more) community in the Greater Boston area. Representing an array of identities and experiences, the panelists discuss what it’s like to access care, their positive and negative experiences within healthcare, and how those experiences intersected with their identities. Through these healthcare narratives from within the community, panelists share advice on caring for LGBTQIA+ patients. 

A video recording of the webinar is available online here.

COVID AND THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY

Panel Discussion: COVID-19 and the LGBTQ+ community

June 24, 2020

Dr. Katz-Wise wrote “COVID-19 and the LGBTQ+ community: Rising to unique challenges” for the Harvard Health Blog in April 2020 and so far over 2120 people have read it. Her piece remains one of the few published on the ways our community is impacted by this pandemic. With all of the media coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is striking that the conversation has not addressed the ways this pandemic is affecting LGBTQ+ people.
 
Pride Month offers us the chance to reflect on the barriers and stigma we continue to face in healthcare, policy, research, and our own families. Pride Month is also an opportunity to reflect on our communities’ strengths. This panel discussion offers us a chance to come together and learn from our own LGBTQ+ community at Harvard Medical School as we work together to change the conversation.
