June is Pride Month to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots that marked the beginning of the fight for LGBTQ rights and works to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) Americans. That involves all aspects of the lives of the LGBTQ community.

Access to and affordability of healthcare is a major concern for LGBTQ people and there are some unique challenges as well.

Watch or stream Transforming Health: LGBTQ+ Health Thursday, June 16 at 8pm on WITF TV, the free PBS Video app, or online.

On Thursday’s Smart Talk, we’re joined by Transforming Health producer Keira McGuire and Christa Nelson, who identifies as a transgender woman.
