Howard Brown offers an Alternative Insemination (AI) program for people interested in becoming pregnant via intrauterine insemination. This program is affirming of the lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities, as well as people living with HIV. Our program provides holistic, affirming care to individuals, couples, and families as they prepare for pregnancy and begin the conception process. We strongly believe in a comprehensive approach to health and wellness, and our AI program reflects this by offering medical care, behavioral health, research, referrals, and social support services to program participants.

The Herstory of Women’s Health Services at Howard Brown Health
Women’s Health Services at Howard Brown Health is a descendant of The Lesbian Community Cancer Project (LCCP). LCCP was founded in 1990 to address the myriad of health disparities faced by lesbian women. In 2007 LCCP merged with Howard Brown Health and was renamed the Lesbian Community Care Project, to reflect the services provided beyond cancer prevention, treatment and advocacy. Today Women’s Health Services promotes the health and wellness of the lesbian, bisexual, queer, and transgender community through healthcare services, public education, research, and programming.
