Third Gender Pronouns: Why, What, and How

A google document created by CDPHE’s GSA ERG that covers the necessity behind using inclusive gender pronouns beyond the binary male (he/him/his) and female (she/her/hers) gender identities to be encompassing of those in the transgender spectrum (non-binary, gender nonconforming, genderqueer folx who may use they/them/theirs or zie/zim/zir pronouns)

Strategic Plan for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Health in Colorado
  • We created the first-ever strategic plan focused on the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Coloradans.

    • With participation from more than 45 organizations across the state, the plan aims to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, health disparities faced by LGBT communities by removing unnecessary barriers and building new pathways to healthy living.

  • As in the rest of the nation, Colorado’s LGBT population experiences higher rates of tobacco, alcohol and substance use, infectious disease, and depression.

  • National and state research shows that many LGBT people face multiple obstacles in getting appropriate health information, prevention services and health care.
