Queer Health Advocates are trained volunteers who accompany and advocate for members of the community who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, aromantic, queer, or questioning during medical appointments. Queer Health advocates help their clients navigate the healthcare system, amplify clients' voices, promote feelings of safety, and get the care they deserve.
