In 2019, Howard Brown Health will begin fostering dialog about issues that affect your health, life, and well-being. We believe that real talk has real impact. When we have honest conversations about healthcare, race, privilege, sex, and gender, we are better able to fight stigma and transform ourselves and the world around us.

Whether it’s from biological family, community, or employment, isolation affects LGBTQ people’s lives in innumerable ways. Feeling alone reinforces the power that stigma has over our lives. Space to share our fears, concerns, and whole selves openly and honestly is vital to eliminating stigma. The parts of ourselves and our experiences that cause us to feel shame are commonly experienced by others around us.

You bring real talk, and we’ll reflect that openness right back. Open dialog is good for your health and your community’s health. Share your realness and your complexity, and we will affirm and empower you. Let’s talk about sex. Let’s talk about mental wellness. Let’s talk about your health. Let’s talk about it.

At Howard Brown Health, our staff and medical providers are here to start non-judgmental, affirming conversations about your health and wellness. Keep an eye on our blog and social media so you don’t miss vital wellness topics throughout the year.
