Making Us Visible was a partnership project between Sherbourne Health, Ontario Breast Cancer Community Research Initiative, Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto, Willow Breast Cancer Support and Resource Services, and the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto.

The goal of the project was to promote access to breast health and breast cancer services for lesbian and bisexual women, and it was funded by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

The project worked to organize a peer education program around breast health for lesbian and bisexual women. The goal of this program was for diverse volunteers from the lesbian and bisexual community to participate in a training program to deepen their knowledge of breast health and breast cancer issues and then to plan individual events designed to meet the needs of their own circles of community members.
