LGBTQIA+ Health Awareness: AP Sex Ed

LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week is a time to bring attention to the devastating cycle of discrimination and health disparities that affect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ+) people. LGBTQ+ people encounter discrimination in employment, relationship recognition, and insurance coverage on a regular basis; consequently, they are less likely to be able to afford vital health care than their straight and non-transgender neighbors. For LGBT people of color, barriers to care and health disparities are even greater.
