Candace Bond-Theriault, Policy Counsel for Reproductive Rights, Health & Justice at the National LGBTQ Task Force stated, “This new guide is like no other as it outlines critical healthcare issues through an intersectional approach. It takes into consideration the realities that make up the everyday lives of LGBTQ people, such as racial injustice, economic injustice, gender inequality & immigration status. We believe that in order to improve the lives & health of all LGBTQ people, a clear understating that these issues overlap is necessary.” Brian Hujdich, Executive Director of the National Coalition for LGBT Health added, “We collectively identified, prioritized & defined the issues that effect the LGBT community so that this information can be helpful in looking at how elected officials address these issues. The guide empowers LGBTQ individuals to have an impact on the health & wellbeing of our community through voting & having their voices heard on Election Day this November 8th.”
