The Health State of the LGBTQ Community in Austin, Texas
If you have ever been to a pride month event, then you are aware that Austin plays host to the most spirited ones. The city also has numerous bars and joints designed to offer unique entertainment while meeting the needs of the LGBTQ community; both local and foreign. But with all these amenities in place, one thing is conspicuously missing, and this is the availability of functional and sufficient healthcare institutions that can guarantee wellness security of the local LGBTQ community.
A recent study in Austin proved that despite the blossoming if the local LGBTQ community, there is a lapse in healthcare services. And while health care centers such as the Kind Clinic are proving to be crucial to the provision of wellness security for the local LGBTQ community, truth of the matter is that they are receiving minimal funding, while they provide healthcare services at minimal or no costs. Upon evaluating the scenario, Rick Cofer took up a personal initiative to help fund the Kind Clinic. For Kind Clinic to succeed in providing services for the local LGBTQ community, local community stakeholders need to come together and offer financial assistance for this worthy cause, reports lookthinkmake.com

The event was a success since it attracted the local community and gave them an opportunity to interact with the minority group.
