How Tech is Changing the Way the LGBTQ+ Community and Government Interact

June 28, 2022

The California LGBTQ Health and Human Services Network is using new technology from Qualtrics to collect feedback from LGBTQ+ residents at community town halls, local Pride and LGBTQ events and more. As a result of their research, the State of CA recently dedicated $17.5 million to the Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LBTQ) Health Equity Initiative — a first-of-its-kind community-driven initiative to identify and address barriers to health equity. Up to 9% of lesbian, gay and bisexual people experience discrimination and/or harassment from a medical provider, and for transgender people it can be as high as 29%.
