June is Pride Month, a month-long celebration and amplification of LGBTQIA+ voices. Pride Month recognizes the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals have had throughout history. At Curative, we’re using this opportunity to spotlight the voices of our LGBTQIA+ colleagues, who are leaders in the healthcare space.
As of February 2022, 7.1% of Americans identify as LGBTQIA+, with increasing numbers in younger generations. Roughly 21% of Generation Z Americans who have reached adulthood — those born between 1997 and 2003 — identify as LGBT. As the LGBTQIA+ community grows, we are continuing to identify and address health concerns that are specific to this community.
Community health and wellness is a core aspect of Curative’s mission. We believe that individual health and community health are deeply intertwined, and are committed to being a partner to the LGBTQIA+ community to best serve their healthcare needs. Through representation, consideration, and amplification, we are working hard to bring healthcare equitably to all communities, especially those who have traditionally lacked access to safe and affordable healthcare options.
We asked some LGBTQIA+ leaders at Curative about what being a healthcare leader means to them, and why community health is important. Here’s what they said!
Thank you to our staff for sharing their insights and perspectives, and Happy Pride Month to all of our patients, staff, and communities!
