Gay City hosts 20th Annual Rainbow Health Fair

Offers free health services to trans women, trans men, non-binary people and lesbian/bi/queer women

The 20th Annual Rainbow Health Fair will be hosted at Gay City (517 E Pike St) on Saturday, July 7 from 12pm to 4pm. The event provides free health services for a cross-section of the Seattle community with limited health and wellness resources: trans women, trans men, non-binary people and lesbian/bi/queer women.

This year's fair will feature a new health service: gender-affirming hormones. Medical providers from Planned Parenthood will be available to prescribe treatments that help align people with their gender identity. Insurance or self-pay is required for this service, but financial assistance is available to people in need. To schedule an appointment for hormones visit gaycity.org/RainbowHealth. The health fair will also have licensed mental health therapists on-site to write letters of support for those seeking gender-affirming health care, such as hormone therapy or surgeries.

Some of the other free services available include massages, HIV testing, acupuncture, and cuddling sessions. Free mammograms will also be available to uninsured people that are 40+ years old with an appointment. To schedule a mammogram appointment, please call (425) 200-5841.

'We're honored to continue the legacy of Rainbow Health Fair, a service that was started two decades ago by Seattle Lesbian Cancer Project,' says Fred Swanson, Executive Director of Gay City. 'As Gay City continues to grow in our role as Seattle's LGBTQ Center, you can expect to see even more programs like this which address specific needs of underserved groups in LGBTQ communities. We're excited to be a part of it.'

The Rainbow Health Fair is sponsored by Gay City, Amerigroup, Ingersoll Gender Center, Planned Parenthood, Swedish Hospital, Susan G. Komen: Puget Sound, and Women's Health Outreach.

To learn more about the Rainbow Health Fair, please visit GayCity.org/RainbowHealthFair.
