For the month of May I’d like to share an important organization, the Lesbian Health Fund. I’m excited to be making a donation to the Lesbian Health Fund silent and live auctions taking place on June 1, 2017 in Burlington, VT. I’ll be offering an 18″ x 24″ portrait of a single sitter, with LHF covering the costs of materials and shipping.
Misinformation, homophobia among health care providers, and a lack of scientific data on basic lesbian health needs result in dangerously inadequate health care for many lesbians and sexual minority women including bisexual women and trans women who partner with women.
The mission of the Lesbian Health Fund is to improve the health of lesbians and other sexual minority women (SMW) and their families through research. LHF has given over $864,000 to fund 113 research grants and is the only US research fund dedicated solely to the health needs of lesbians and other sexual minority women!
