S02 E17 - MBC & the LGBTQ2S+ Community
Show Notes

Join us for our discussion about the LGBTQ2S+ community and MBC.  Co-host Natalia Green moderates a panel with Bob DeVito and Rainy Orteca,  two guests living with MBC, and who are part of the LGBTQ2S+ community along with the co-founder of Queering Cancer, Dr. Evan Taylor.  Dr. Taylor is an assistant professor in Social Work and Human Services at the University of the Fraser Valley who has focused their research on social determinants of health and health inequities.   We also sit down with Kimiko Tobimatsu , a Canadian human rights lawyer and an award-winning graphic novelist whose book, Kimiko Does Cancer, tells the story of her breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 25 and the challenges she faced as a queer person, living with breast cancer.   We wish all members of the LGTBQ2S+ community a happy PRIDE month filled with love, respect, action, and support that extends to every month of the year.
