LGBTQ2+ people affected by cancer face numerous challenges such as barriers to care, discrimination and poorer experiences with cancer services. Queering Cancer was formed to help address this inequity in cancer care. We provide tailored support, resources, and connection for patients, families, caregivers, and education for healthcare professionals.
June is Pride month and we’re hosting a special fundraiser. Join us to celebrate and learn more about creating an affirming environment for LGBTQ2+ patients and carers. We’ll discuss the impact of cancer “gendering”, why coming out is often beneficial for patients affected by cancer and oncology healthcare professionals, and the double taboo of LGBTQ2+ sexual health and cancer.
Suggested webinar donation is $10 – $20.
