Queering Cancer website launched by EDST graduate Amanda Bolderston & co.

EDST graduate Amanda Bolderston (EdD 2019), LLED graduate Evan Taylor (PhD 2019) and PhD student Meghan McInnis (Queens) are launching Queering Cancer, a new website to improve support of LGBTQ2+ people with cancer developed by researchers and patient collaborators. The website offers a community forum and information database for LGBTQ2+ people affected by cancer. It has been developed by a team of researchers funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research, Gender and Health Institutes, to help address the disparities in access to cancer treatment and support for the LGBTQ2+ community. The website includes a patient story collection, a peer support forum, and a fully searchable database of cancer resources specific to LGBTQ2+ individuals.
