Obstacles & Opportunities: Health & Wellness for LGBT Families

The Bottom Line

As many as two million children living in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) families face significant challenges accessing basic healthcare and may suffer from health disparities due to inequitable laws and social stigma. Obstacles and Opportunities: Ensuring Health and Wellness for LGBT Families outlines how LGBT families face substantial obstacles as they seek access to a range of health services, health insurance, and equitable tax treatment. The report finds that LGBT families have reduced access to health insurance, face restrictions on caregiving and medical decision-making, encounter unwelcoming healthcare environment, and have increased health disparities.

This brief, based on content from All Children Matter: How Legal and Social Inequalities Hurt LGBT Families, was produced in partnership with the National Coalition for LGBT Health and co-authored by the Movement Advancement Project (MAP), Family Equality Council and the Center for American Progress.
