The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Health Caucus is an association of public health professionals committed to furthering LGBTQ issues within the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the field of public health at large. Since its founding in 1975, the LGBTQ Caucus has provided a forum for educational exchange and networking among its members and their allies. The caucus is committed to combating discriminatory health policies and practices against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer individuals and communities.
What do we do?
The LGBTQ Caucus…
Membership in the caucus is open to anyone who expresses an interest in LGBTQ issues. While APHA membership is suggested, it is not a prerequisite of membership to the Caucus. Membership categories include regular members and student members. Caucus membership runs from the opening of each year’s caucus business meeting at the APHA annual meeting through the opening of the following year’s Caucus business meeting. Voting members are those who are current dues-paying caucus members. Student members must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree program.
