Tips for using this forum

Welcome to the LGBTQIA+ Forum. We hope you’ll find comfort and support in this safe space.

All our forums on the Online Community are anonymous and open to everyone, however, we know that sometimes a person’s identity can impact their personal cancer journey. This could be because they have experienced racial health inequalities, breakdown in relationships and family dynamics, religious and cultural challenges, stigmas with their gender and so much more.

As these forums are set up slightly differently from other forums in the Community, we wanted to give some practical tips to help make sure you can navigate to the forum with ease and keep track of forum activity, if you wish.
