LGBTQIA+

People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual,  

transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, or

asexual (LGBTQIA+) are members of every

community. These community members are

diverse and include people of all races and

ethnicities, ages, socioeconomic statuses, and

can be found all over the U.S. and the world.

According to the CDC, "The perspectives and

needs of LGBT people should be routinely

considered in public health efforts to improve

the overall health of every person and eliminate

health disparities."

It is with this in mind that GFC is including the LGBTQIA+ community as a focus for their work in substance use / abuse prevention and community building. We are dedicated to helping to meet the needs of one of the most-impacted communities. This includes providing resources, information, events, and a place LGBTQIA+ community members can come to feel welcomed. 

 

In a recent survey of LGBTQIA+ people, they indicated that the community, in general, are looking for a variety of options like movie nights, book clubs, activity nights for gaming and arts, a safe place to hang out, clothes closet, and access to resources, mental health, and support groups. We will be working with community partners to try to create these options and resources.
