American Cancer Society / GLBT Relay for Life SJ
Type: Health
Relay For Life of The LBGT Community and Friends Cancer doesn’t discriminate; neither do we. We fight so no one has to ever face cancer.

Cancer Facts for the LGBT Community Through the awareness that is brought by the Relay, we know we can make a marked difference in the LGBT Community by making our programs and services more readily available. Cancer Facts for Lesbian and Bisexual Woman Many health insurance policies do not cover unmarried partners. This makes it harder for lesbian and bisexual woman to access quality of health care. Cancer risks are greater for lesbian women who avoid preventive health care because they fear discrimination and insensitivity by health care providers. Definitive research on the incidence of cancer in lesbians has yet to be conducted and published. However, there is a body of evidence suggesting that lesbians have a dense cluster of risk factors, significantly raising their risk of developing breast cancer as well as several other types of cancer. Some conflicting evidence also exists, highlighting the need for state of the art research. Again, increased risks are coupled with lower screening rates for this population, resulting in cancers being detected when they are more difficult to treat. For lesbians, the four cancer risk factors most often cited are increased rates of smoking and higher rates of obesity and high fat diets. HPV, the virus that is one cause of cervical cancer, can be spread through female-to-female sexual contact as well as through female-to-male sexual contact. Lesbian women are no less at risk for cervical cancer than heterosexual women are. Cancer Facts for Gay and Bisexual Men Some men may not want to tell their health care providers that they are gay or bisexual because they do not want discrimination to affect the quality of healthcare they receive. Cigarette smoking among gay men is nearly double that of the general population. Smoking is responsible for 80% of all lung cancers, but it also increases the risk of many other cancers, including colon cancer, esophageal cancer and anal cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. Gay men with prostate cancer have some additional social and sexual challenges that are rarely addressed adequately by their oncologists and social workers. For example, prostate cancer treatment can have some distinct effects on gay sexual behavior and relationships. Approximately 2,000 American men are diagnosed with anal cancer each year. Gay and bisexual men are 17 times more likely to develop anal cancer than heterosexual men. Anal cancer is not very common in men with healthy immune systems, but it seems that the overwhelming majority of Anal Cancer survivors are gay or bisexual men. Cancer Facts for Transgender People Uninsured rates are highest among transgender people. In New York City, for example, the Department of Health reported in 1999 that 21% of transgender respondents reported having no health insurance of any kind. Even those with health insurance can face difficulties in obtaining appropriate cancer screenings. A transgender woman, listed on her insurance as a female, but still having an intact prostate gland, would not be covered for prostate cancer screening. The same is true for transgender man with an intact cervix. Transgender people have extremely high rates of smoking, drinking and HIV, all increasing their risk for developing an array of cancers, including lung cancer, anal cancer and liver cancer.
Anna Crusis Women's Choir
Type: Lesbian
Anna Crusis is Philadelphia's premier women's choir and the nation's first and longest running feminist choir. The choir is dedicated to musical excellence as well as justice, peace and equality with emphasis on music by, for and about women and their lives. Founded in 1975, Anna Crusis has performed on stages from Carnegie Hall to the United Nations to schools in its home city of Philadelphia. The choir performs a wide range of genres from classical to pop, jazz and reggae to folk, gospel and world music. Her unusual name originates from the Greek word "anacrusis" which is an upbeat entrance to a musical phrase– the precise moment of anticipation and exhilaration that occurs as a singer takes a quick breath before vocalizing. Like her name, Anna Crusis Women's Choir anticipates sharing more exhilarating musical moments with new audiences everywhere. Reach her at www.annacrusis.com
