This is an acronym that stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer. LGBTQ individuals struggle with unique issues around coming out, dealing with family rejection after coming out, and facing both external and internal homophobia. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations, in addition to having the same basic health needs as the general population, experience health disparities and barriers related to sexual orientation* and/or gender identity or expression. Many avoid or delay care or receive inappropriate or inferior care because of perceived or real homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and discrimination by health care providers. CTHC offers a safe supportive environment for individuals of the LGBTQ community. We are committed to providing services to the LGBTQ community.
