Join us in celebrating the 22nd National LGBTQ Health Awareness Week, March 18-22. 

The National Coalition for LGBTQ Health, founded in 2000, represents LGBTQ individuals, health care/service providers, researchers, and advocates. The Coalition created the National LGBTQ Health Awareness Week 22 years ago to raise awareness about timely and relevant issues impacting LGBTQ health care.

This year’s theme is VITAL VIBRANT VOICES, speaking to the VITAL need for VIBRANT and diverse VOICES to address LGBTQ health issues.

For resources and information regarding LGBTQ health, contact the UNM LGBTQ Resource Center at (505) 277-LBGT (5428) or visit the Human Rights Campaign Page on Resources for LGBTQ+ Patients.

For library resources, visit our LGBTQIA+ Health Resource Guide, which has information on patient support and resources for research support. The library has access to a variety of LGBTQ journals including Transgender Health, the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Mental Health, and the Journal of GLBT Family Studies. You can also find links to external research organizations including the NIH Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office and the Pride Study Research, among others.

The library also purchases books and ebooks focused on LGBTQ health topics. You can view some of the titles on our New Materials guide under the Justice, Equity, and Inclusivity sections. If you have a resource you’d like to see in the library’s collection, use our Request a Library Purchase form to submit a recommendation.
