Physical Health

Physical health is important. You only get one body, so take care of it!

Throughout this section we hope to address a couple of different areas: Firstly, we want to look at healthy living: how to eat healthy and get exercise without overdoing it. Secondly, we want to look at issues around accessing healthcare, including current barriers to LGBTQ competent care. Also, be sure to check out our blog, where we’ll take a look at some of the latest fitness and diet trends to see whether they actually work and whether or not they’re good for your health!
