Health Equity & Wellness

Garden State Equality’s Affirming Healthcare Map is a directory of healthcare providers that have proactively identified themselves as LGBTQ-friendly. Some have also been trained by Garden State Equality staff on best practices in LGBTQ+ care. Users can filter the directory by specialty or simply search by location to see the nearest providers.
The mission of Elders for Equality is to empower LGBTQ+ older adults and older adult care providers to advocate and educate for LGBTQ+ aging issues throughout New Jersey.
The cornerstones of successful aging include health and wellbeing, economic security and social connectedness. Garden State Equality works with long-term care facilities to help them give the best care possible to LGBTQ+ older adults and older adults living with HIV.
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. Garden State Equality has partnered with New Jersey’s Department of Health and its Office of Tobacco Control to identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities among the LGBTQ+ community.
Our work with vulnerable populations includes advocacy around HIV decriminalization, sex workers' rights, housing equity, and cannabis justice.
