Queering healthcare

August 16th, 2021

Research shows what LGBTQ+ communities have long known: that they face health disparities linked to societal stigma, discrimination and denial of their civil and human rights. Zena Sharman’s The Care We Dream Of: Liberatory and Transformative Approaches to LGBTQ+ Health (Arsenal Pulp $22.95) imagines a health system that honours queer and trans people’s lives and bodies; as well as one that is committed to their healing, pleasure and liberation. In the collection, Sharman adds her essays on transforming the health system to other LGBTQ+ writers’ work that includes stories, poetry and non-fiction. Sharman co-edited the Lambda Literary award-nominated anthology, Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2011) and she’s presented on gender, sexuality and health to audiences across North America. She has also been a cabaret host, a go-go dancer for a queer punk band and a campus radio DJ. 9781551528601
