LGBTQ populations have higher rates of disabilities, chronic illness and chronic pain than their heterosexual counterparts. (Kaiser Family Foundation LGBTQ Health Report) LGBTQ individuals who are poor, low-income, living paycheck to paycheck or working class have less access to needed services. In 2013, Kaiser Family Foundation found that 1 out of 3 LGBTQ individuals who live at 400% of the federal poverty level were uninsured and two-thirds of these individuals were uninsured for 2 or more years.* LGBTQ individuals living with disabilities are often an invisible population in the LGBTQ community because advocacy, community building and education are often inaccessible - which contributes to their invisibility. Join LGBTQ Allyship on March 4th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Rainier Community Center, 4600 38th Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98118, for our Intergenerational Gathering highlighting LGBTQ speakers on their experiences with chronic pain and illness. Speakers include - Redwolf Painter and Spencer Bergstagt! This event is wheelchair accessible and there is a parking lot next to room entrance as an accessible walking distance. Please refrain from wearing scents. Children are welcome! We take a community approach to care taking - so if you are comfortable we will all welcome and care for younger beings. Food and drink will be available!
