Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans Women’s Health Week
LBT Women's Health Week 2021
The aim of LBT Women’s Health Week is to raise awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer women’s health inequalities, to make it easier for service providers to empower service users and for communities to support LGBTQ women.
The week is also an opportunity to celebrate, highlight, and learn from the work of groups and services which provide dedicated support to the women in our communities.
Our theme this year is Let's Break The Silence. We want to be having conversations and raising awareness about stigmatised, taboo, or hush-hush health issues that LBT women experience — menopause, cervical screenings, sexual violence, mental health and much more.
#LBTWomensHealth21 (8th-12th March), will include:
- supporting LGBT and other VCSE organisations to put on events and activities during the week,
- working with partners to plan panels, webinars and learning sessions,
- opportunities to bring together the people working at all levels to improve LGBTQ women’s health to network and celebrate with each other,
- online wellbeing events for the LBT community, and
- working with sector and media partners to get wide coverage of the week and the health issues we’ll be highlighting.

*LBT Women's Health Week is not a space for us to gatekeep. We want these events to be open to anyone who identifies with their content, whether or not they identify as female. This includes AFAB trans men and non-binary people who may experience health issues typically associated with cis women, for example the menopause or menstruation.*
