My 2-year journey!! I am Cancer Free and I am very Blessed. I can’t lie and say that at the beginning I wasn’t scared and wondering why Me. I even Googled if being Gay could have given me Cancer. Well, Yes and no! We do not know nearly enough about cancer in the LGBT community and we need to. None of the large national cancer registries and surveys of cancer incidence collect data about sexual orientation or gender identity, leaving lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender cancer survivors like me – embedded and invisible among the vast wealth of information these surveys provide to other groups. Other ethnic, geographic, and racial populations are able to use the data gotten from these statistics to develop prevention and treatment programs dedicated to eroding the health disparities they face; they know precisely how prevalent cancer is in their communities. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people do not.
