Featured Project
Pride Doc

So finding an LGBTQ-competent provider can be as easy as finding a good coffee shop.

What It Is

PrideDoc is a mobile directory of LGBTQ+-competent healthcare providers that leverages crowdsourcing and review culture to build a comprehensive provider list populated and vetted by the community in real-time.

By increasing the discoverability of competent providers, LGBTQ+ patients will have a larger pool of providers to choose from, and providers will be motivated to serve this community. By employing human-centered design principles, developing stellar user experience and user interface design, and facilitating real-time updates, PrideDoc will substantially improve upon the currently available LGBTQ provider directory options.

Where We Started

Pride Doc is one of our works in progress. We actively seeking funding to complete its programming and disseminate it to the community.

Why It Matters

Fear of discrimination or stigmatization by the healthcare establishment and the lack of LGBTQ+-competent providers are barriers that keep many LGBTQ+ individuals from seeking the care they need, when they need it.

Because health care is a human right.

These barriers can lead to poor mental health and physical health outcomes in a population that already faces significant health disparities. PrideDoc helps the LGBTQ+ community overcome these barriers and get appropriate and equitable care that is a basic human right.
