Finding LGBTQ Affirming healthcare providers just got ridiculously easy
When you get the right care, you thrive.
The past five years have proven monumental for the LGBTQ community. From the supreme court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges to the continued retrenchment of HIV to unprecedented visibility in pop culture and mainstream media, the victories have been considerable — and hard won.
We all know that the battle is far from over, but as important as it is to continue fighting in the face of an uncertain political future, we must also turn our energy inwards to ensure both our minds and bodies are receiving the right care.
That’s where Lighthouse comes in.
Launched in New York and expanding rapidly nationwide, Lighthouse is a new startup that aims to empower the LGBTQ community by providing easy access to a curated and competent network of LGBTQ-affirming healthcare and wellness professionals. With the click of a button, you’ll be able to find the closest LGBTQ-affirming doctors, therapists, psychiatrists, medical specialists, and more.
At a time when more than 50 percent of LGBTQ individuals experience some form of discrimination in healthcare settings, we’re carving out a safe and easily accessible space for members of the LGBTQ community to find best-in-class care. Because for care to be impactful, you need to bring your whole, unguarded self into treatment. And when you get the right care, you thrive.
Built by the community, for the community, Lighthouse seeks to create an empowered future in which LGBTQ individuals have access to the resources they need to live their best lives — on their own terms.
