The goal of “Love, Lipstick and Lashes” is to highlight diversity and educate that cancer affects
everyone regardless of race, age, religion, gender and gender identity. According to the
American Cancer Society, members of the LGBQT community face health disparities every day.
For example, studies have found that lesbians and bisexual women have higher rates of breast cancer than heterosexual women. They also get less routine health care than other women, including colorectal, breast, and cervical cancer screening. Gay and bisexual men also face barriers to getting the routine health care and cancer screening tests they need. A number of factors contribute to these health disparities including lower rates of insurance, higher smoking rates in the LGBQT community, fear of discrimination, higher risk of HPV and negative experiences with health care providers.
