Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people routinely face stigma and barriers to health care. Do Ask, Do Tell: Talking to your health care provider about being LGBT was developed to empower LGBT patients to “come out” to health care providers. Being open and honest about sexuality and gender identity is important for improving individual health and allowing providers to deliver culturally responsive, cost-effective, patient-centered care. There is space on the brochure to add your organization’s logo. For information about obtaining copies for your organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org
In response to multiple requests, we have developed a poster to display in your health center that helps create a welcoming climate. This poster encourages patients to talk to their provider about being LGBT, and lets patients know that providers will welcome the conversation. The poster is available in English and Spanish!
We also developed a “Do Ask, Do Tell” poster featuring youth that can be used School-Based Health Centers and other health care organizations catering to youth. [Download PDF]

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the use of an HIV treatment medication for HIV-negative people at high risk of getting HIV through sexual exposure. Known as “pre-exposure prophylaxis”—or PrEP—this medication is a once-a-day pill to be used in combination with condoms and other safer sex behavioral strategies to reduce risk. Protecting Yourself from HIV through PrEP informs consumers about PrEP and how it works, as well as other ways they can work with their health care providers to protect themselves against HIV.
