Do Ask, Do Tell: Talking to your provider about being LGBT

Do Ask, Do Tell Brochure Cover

June, 2013 Download PDF

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 lgbthealtheducation@fenwayhealth.org

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!

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.
