The Network

for LGBT Tobacco Control

About Us

The Network: what do we do?

We work to link information and people on a variety of LGBT health issues. We are created to help eliminate tobacco disparities for LGBT people.

Mission

Because…

>>Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender people have been targeted by the Tobacco Industry.
>>Interventions to counter tobacco use are not always culturally tailored for the LGBT communities.
>>The LGBTQ communities smoke at rates 40%-almost 200% higher than the general population.

The National Tobacco Control Network is working to link and support the many local LGBT health advocates, so their work can help eliminate tobacco health disparities for all LGBTs.

Operating Principles

The Network is by us and for us.

There is strength in collaborations.

The LGBT communities are diverse. Network activities strive to include and reflect that full diversity.
