For nearly a decade, the National LGBT Health Education Center has been providing educational programs to health centers and other health care organizations with the goal of optimizing health care quality and eliminating health disparities for sexual and gen- der minority people. Recently, we and our parent organization, The Fenway Institute, Fenway Health, have come to recognize the imperative to more actively include the health of intersex people in our mission and training programs. Therefore, all of our pro- grams now use the acronym LGBTQIA+, which refers to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and all sexual and gender minority people. As part of our commitment to sup- porting the health of all LGBTQIA+ people, we have written the following community-informed clinical guide on primary care for intersex people. The guide provides an overview of intersex terms and concepts, the health concerns of intersex people, intersex-af- firming practices, and resources for further learning.

Tips & advice for neurodivergent, autistic, gender-diverse, and trans people about finding & going to doctors — A downloadable guide prepared by the AWN Network (awnnetwork.org) and the LGBTQ Task Force (thetaskforce.org)
Research and community storytelling reveal
that autistic and trans people experience major health disparities in access to care, quality of care, and health outcomes for physical and mental health care. Many of us also experience discrimination, prejudice, and bias in doctor's offices and hospitals, even in clinics meant to serve marginalized communities.
For autistic and trans people who haven't had reliable access to health care, the processes of finding providers and knowing how to plan for disability-related access needs can be scary, confusing, and complicated.
The Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network and the National LGBTQ Task Force are excited to share a guide for trans autistic people called Before You Go: Know Your Rights & What to Expect at the Doctor and in the Hospital.
This guide will help our trans and autistic community members know better what to expect when going to doctors or hospitals, understand rights and responsibilities, and strategize for safety planning, effective communication, accommodations, and more.
