    Event Description: 

    Data show that LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit people are more likely than others to live alone. Those who don't live alone may not live with other members of these communities. They may not be "out" to the people they live with, and in many cases, they would be in danger if they were. For these reasons, many of them rely on public and commercial spaces to connect with their communities and loved ones. What happens when those spaces are gone? How can healthcare organizations create virtual spaces to support community and connection their LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit clients and community members, and others who are similarly marginalized?

    The Alliance has long recognized the value of collecting socio-demographic data, including race data, as a tool for measuring health inequities and advancing health equity. COVID-19 has made this value even clearer, as emerging data from other jurisdictions shows that it disproportionately affects Black and racialized people.
