About Us

Who we are

The LGBTQ+ Healthcare Directory is a project of the Tegan and Sara Foundation and GLMA – Health Professionals Advancing LGBTQ+ Equality.

It is a free, searchable database of all kinds of doctors, medical professionals and healthcare providers who are knowledgeable and sensitive to the unique health needs of LGBTQ+ people in the USA and Canada.

LGBTQ+ patients deserve healthcare providers who they can be open and honest with —free from fear of stigma or bias. The simple act of connecting patients with care is a solution to this problem.

Years ago, GLMA built the very first directory of LGBTQ+ healthcare professionals. Through GLMA’s vast membership, the directory grew to be the most respected resource of its kind in the United States.

Together with input from LGBTQ+ health experts and community leaders, this invaluable resource has been updated with innovative search functionality, the highest standards of accessibility and a new set of guiding principles. Read more about it in our FAQ.
