Here's a snapshot; see below for larger images!



NEW!: We have created an online store where you can purchase products carrying our taglines. Shirts, buttons, magnets, mugs, and more!  All profits from these unique items go towards funding the work of the GLBT Health Access Project.



Like the posters?
Our posters and stickers have been used around the world in an effort to create welcoming spaces.  If you are interested in adapting the posters to reflect your home agency or state, contact us to discuss the possibilities.







An advertising campaign by the GLBT Health Access Project was launched in May 1997.  This groundbreaking campaign was designed to combat homophobia in healthcare. Titled "Deserves the Same Care," the campaign featured three ads that appeared on bus and subway lines throughout the Boston metro area and in newspapers statewide. The ads carried the tagline "Homophobia in Healthcare is Unhealthy," and sought to raise awareness about barriers to health care access for GLBT people.  Stickers were also produced bearing the same tagline.

In 2004 we added three more posters to this series, empahsizing elders and transgender individuals.  In addition, we also added a sticker that reads "Transphobia in Healthcare is Unhealthy."

How do I get the materials?

If you are from Massachusetts, posters and stickers can be obtained for free by going to the Massachusetts Health Promotion Clearinghouse. 

If you are from outside Massachusetts, please go here to order posters directly from us.  We are happy to send them out of state, but ask that postage and handling charges are paid by the recipient.  They are also available for download as a pdf file (see below).

In addition, be sure to check out the Community Standards of Practice for Provision of Quality Health Care Services for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Clients.   This is a concrete and useful tool to see how anyone can make their agency or company more welcoming!
