KMOJ 89.9: Health Equity & the LGBTQ+ Community
Bias toward the LGBTQ+ community has negatively impacted LGBTQ+ health and their access to healthcare. During this episode, podcast host Dr. Sylvia is joined by Raquelle Paulsen, Lead Case Manager at the University of Minnesota’s Youth and AIDS Project, and Jeremy Hanson Willis, CEO of Rainbow Health in Minnesota. They have a candid conversation on the health disparities LGBTQ+ communities experience, specifically those affected by HIV and the horrific number of murders of transgender and non-binary people. The conversation includes Raquelle sharing her experience as a black trans female living with HIV, the challenges, environments, and life adjustments for people navigating this side of healthcare, and the services and positive impact of Rainbow Health in the Twin Cities MN.
