Lemonade on the Lawn is back! Join us Saturday, May 20, from noon-3 p.m. for the 2nd annual LGBTQIA+ Health and Well-being Fair, at the Clifton Branch Library.
Returning with More Services and Resources
Over a dozen organizations will be attending Lemonade on the Lawn, offering health and wellbeing services to the LGBTQIA+ folks in our communities. Opening remarks will feature Dr. Sarah Pickle as well as a University of Cincinnati student. Dr. Pickle, according to The Health Collaborative, is "a trailblazer in the field of transgender medicine." In order to ensure that LGBTQIA+ patients in our community receive exceptional medical care, she and her colleagues at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine created one of the first nationally recognized transgender-focused medical school curriculums in the country.
Registration is not required for the event and all ages are welcome. Light refreshments and (of course!) lemonade will be provided. Participating organizations include:
- Girls Rock
- Hamilton County Public Health
- Human Rights Campaign Greater Cincinnati
- Inside Out
- League of Women Voters of Cincinnati Area
- Lighthouse Youth Services
- Living Values
- TreeHouse Cincinnati
- The LGBTQ Center at the University of Cincinnati
- Waybridge Counseling
