Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Health Acess Project

Resources > Cancer and the GLBT Community

The GLBT Advisory Board of the American Cancer Society works to develop partnerships with diverse community-based organizations, health professionals, advocates and consumers. They endeavor to identify and remove barriers to care and promote culturally competent standards of practice for health care and support services. The board also strives to develop and disseminate resource materials and information and to establish a comprehensive plan for education, prevention, detection and treatment of cancer for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals in Massachusetts.

The board has created a variety of materials for distribution and use.  They are available for download here as pdf files.
