Why queers need to care

A lot of LGBT people are poor, and many are on Medi-Care and Medi-Cal. People who use Medi-Care and Medi-Cal have incredibly high co-pays right now because Medi-Cal is no longer covering the co-pay on prescriptions. What that means in real-money terms is about $600-800 a month in out-of-pocket health care for people with HIV.

Lesbians have a higher rate of breast cancer.

Not all employers offer spousal benefits to same-sex partners.
