Two-Spirit and LGBTQ Indigenous Health

The purpose of this fact sheet is to introduce settler service providers to two-spirit and LGBTQ
Indigenous health concerns as indicated in current research.

This fact sheet summarizes research on Two-Spirit and LGBTQ Indigenous Health. Existing data on the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and two-spirit Indigenous people suggests that they experience unique barriers to culturally safe health care, and are at greater risk for negative mental and physical health outcomes than their non-Indigenous LGBTQ peers and their non-LGBTQ Indigenous peers.
