Mammography Education

My breasts. My need to know.

Promoting lesbian, bisexual, trans, and non-binary breast/chest care.

We each come to breast exams from a unique place. Some of us love breasts: ours and other people’s. Some of us look in the mirror and see the curves of our chest as a betrayal of who we are. Some of us spent years on HRT waiting for our breasts to grow and make us complete.
No matter who we are or how we feel about the tissue that hangs from our chest, two things are true:
• Early detection of breast cancer could mean the difference between life and death,
• We deserve mammography care that affirms our bodies, genders, and identities.

The following is a list of mammography providers trained by The Institute for LGBTQ Health Equity to provide culturally competent services to our communities.
