Other publications

Two of the key publications that we use when providing information on LGBTQ+ women’s health inequalities and health needs and experiences are:

Stonewall’s LGBT in Britain: Health Report and PHE’s Improving the health and wellbeing of lesbian and bisexual women and other women who have sex with women

Harri Weeks recently spoke to VICE about why LGBTQ+ women experience health inequalities and what to do about it, you can read the article here: Queer Women Are More Unhealthy Than Straight Women. This Is Why

Webinars

In 2019 we ran a webinar during LBT Women’s Health Week which outlined some of the current research in the area of LGBTQ+ Women’s Health.

During LBT Women’s Health Week 2020, NHS England & Improvement will run a webinar which outlines findings from the National GP Patients Survey as they relate to LGBTQ+ women, and particularly bisexual women.
