March 20 – 24: National LGBT Health Awareness Week

March 23

The National Coalition for LGBTQ Health invites you to join them for the 21st National LGBTQ Health Awareness Week, taking place March 20 to March 24, 2023. This year’s theme is AWAKE AND AWARE.

This theme was chosen because despite a number of positive steps forward, LGBTQ people continue to face significant barriers to accessing healthcare services. This includes the discrimination they encounter from insurers and medical providers, as well as the delays or denials of care they face. In addition, in many cases, a lack of federal legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity is the primary source of these barriers.

As healthcare providers and advocates for the LGBTQ community and other underserved populations who experience health disparities, we are AWAKE to What’s Happening and AWARE of What’s Right. This Week is intended to help the healthcare community advocate for reducing barriers to LGBTQ persons by creating and maintaining safe, inclusive and welcoming environments—and ensuring quality, accessible and non-discriminatory health care.

If your organization has a program or event planned for National GLBT Health Awareness Week, and youʻd like us to promote it or partner with you, please contact us here at the Hawai’i LGBT Legacy Foundation at
