A recently released report shows there is a disparity in health care among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Missourians. The study by the Missouri Foundation for Health shows LGBT individuals have less access to health care and tend to be less healthy than the general population.
Reporting from Jacob McCleland of KRCU used in this report.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Missourians have less access to healthcare and tend to be less healthy than the general population. That’s according to a new report by the Missouri Foundation for Health.
Supporters of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community Friday called on St. Louis County and individual municipalities to enact anti-discrimination laws.
Five area cities, including the city of St. Louis, have updated their discrimination ordinances to include protections for the LGBT community. Andrew Shaughnessy, with the LGBT advocacy group PROMO, says there are several others considering doing the same thing.
