In its second year the UCLA Center for LGBTQ Advocacy, Research, and Health is expanding its work into myriad focuses of inquiry, from HIV and mental health to substance use issues. It is also conducting trainings about LGBTQ health for medical professionals and others interested in learning about the topic.
The center, also known as C-LARAH, has formed a partnership with the Los Angeles LGBT Center to work co-jointly on research projects. It is also being asked to provide expert testimony in court cases related to transgender health and aspects of LGBTQ health.
"A lot of research cited in different court cases informs health policy around LGBTQ well-being and health," said Matthew J. Mimiaga, 44, a gay man who directs the center.
