Given the current political climate, a certain amount of anxiety surrounding the state of healthcare is expected. Moreover, LGBTQ Americans in particular face unique challenges and needs that seem to consistently fall to the lowest rung of the priority ladder when it comes to healthcare policy.

One Colorado, the state’s largest LGBTQ rights organization, wants to make sure that LGBTQ Coloradans, at least, know what healthcare options they have, what policies and laws are in place, and the ins and outs of access and advocacy. That’s why the organization will host a “Know Your Health, Know Your Rights” workshop on June 8, 5-6:30 p.m. at Pikes Peak Metropolitan Community Church.

This free event is meant to help LGBTQ Coloradans really understand the healthcare landscape of our state, and provide tools to make accessing healthcare easier. It feeds into One Colorado’s 2017 needs assessment, which identified equal access to healthcare as one of the LGBTQ community’s priorities.

Registration is required, and can be done online. Contact policy manager Cara Cheevers at carac@one-colorado.org for more information.
