For Summit 2022: Pushing Possibilities, we partnered with CATIE to create a series of short interviews with 2S/LGBTQ+ health leaders at the conference, asking them to share with us their thoughts about Summit 2022, including what they’ll be taking away from the experience and their thoughts when it comes to pushing possibilities in queer and trans health.
Presenters included researchers, social services workers and community organizers. Their perspectives are presented in 12 short videos which highlight the impactful work taking place across the country. We invite you to watch the videos linked below.
