Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people face health disparities every day. LGBT Health Awareness week, March 27 – 31, is a time to bring attention to the barriers to health care that research shows the LGBT community faces.

They also get less routine health care than other women, including breast and cervical cancer screening. Gay and bisexual men also face a number of barriers to getting the routine health care and cancer screening tests they need.
