  • ADVOCATING for LGBT survivors in mainstream cancer organizations, the media and research.


Announcing the launch of OUT: The National Cancer Survey

Despite a sharp increase in demand for LGBTQI+ trainings for medical providers, there is little documentation on the types of experiences that our communities encounter when seeking cancer care. We know that some of the most frequent consumers of health care are people diagnosed with cancer; today we are excited to launch our latest project: OUT: The National Cancer Survey
