For local information specific to the LGBTQIA+ community:
CrescentCare offers a range of healthcare options sensitive to the unique needs of LGBTQ individuals and their families, including gender-affirming primary care for transgender and gender non-conforming people.
Since founding in 2011, we’ve been a consistent resource for transgender and gender nonconforming Louisianans, whether they needed referrals for providers, support, or an advocate to help them with their school or employer. Also provides monthly support groups for trans folks throughout Louisiana, including Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Shreveport, Lafayette, Lake Charles, and Monroe.
This organization aims to: provide safe space support groups, organize positive and inclusive social events, discuss social action, assist with name and identity change processes, host activities to create a positive social brotherhood, and encourage the conversation of finding out what masculinity means for each of us.
Their mission is to combat homophobia, transphobia, racism and misogyny by supporting community-driven projects and organizations in the greater New Orleans area. The Center’s vision is to create a Greater New Orleans area where gender and sexual minorities are equitable and empowered.
NOAGE New Orleans hosts socialization/educational events for LGBT older adults, and works to increase the cultural competency of providers through trainings and workshops.
