LGBTQ Health

Family Tree Clinic is dedicated to ensuring that people of all gender identities and sexual orientations have access to comprehensive and compassionate sexual health care and education.

The health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people is recognized as a national health concern due to a growing body of research that shows a wide disparity in the availability and accessibility of quality health care services geared towards LGBTQ communities.

Working cooperatively with other community-based organizations, Family Tree Clinic continues to build our capacity to serve LGBTQ communities through our outreach, education, and clinic services. We provide a wide variety of sexual health services and specialized care for LGBTQ individuals through all stages of life, including low cost STI testing and FREE HIV testing for all uninsured patients. Thanks to the Healthier Minnesota Community Clinic Fund for their support of this project.
