Adrian Shanker on Queer Diagnosis: The LGBTQ+ Health Podcast

By Queer Diagnosis

Adrian Shanker leads the conversation in LGBTQ+ healthcare equity and accessibility as the founder of the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. Raised by two moms, Adrian understood at a young age that policy often fails to accommodate families that do not fit the hetero-normative mold. After studying LGBT Policy and Healthcare at George Washington University, Adrian found an absence of published literature centered on LGBTQ+ healthcare consumer experiences. His critically-acclaimed anthology Bodies and Barriers: Queer Activists on Health serves as a tool to retrain the healthcare system. Adrian Shanker is a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS for the Biden-Harris Administration.
