LGBTQ Coloradans often face many challenges and barriers in achieving a healthy life. While LGBTQ individuals have many of the same concerns as the general population, like affordability, access, and quality of care, they also face several unique challenges that affect the ability to live healthy and affirmed lives. Lack of understanding, discrimination, stigma, violence, higher rates of health problems, as well as other barriers, can compound and produce worse health outcomes. One Colorado works to address these issues through policy and advocacy, community engagement, and improving data collection and research on the experiences of LGBTQ Coloradans accessing health care.

LGBTQ Health

In Colorado, many people struggle to gain access to the affordable, quality health care they deserve. While LGBTQ Coloradans face many of the same challenges as heterosexual and cisgender Coloradans when accessing healthcare, they also encounter unique obstacles when trying to fulfill their specific health needs. One Colorado works to remove the barriers that prevent LGBTQ Coloradans from receiving adequate and affordable health coverage and care, so that they can live happy and healthy lives.

Safe Schools

Schools are often places where LGBTQ young people don’t feel safe or included. In Colorado, 7 out of 10 students are harassed based on their sexual orientation. It is important that we work to build a climate across our state where LGBTQ students can be out, safe, and respected in their schools.

Transgender Equality

Transgender Coloradans face unique challenges. Widespread discrimination, unemployment, homelessness, and violence are just some of the issues transgender people face on a daily basis. One Colorado is devoted to ending discrimination and violence against transgender Coloradans through education and advocacy on the state and local level.
