FINAL TALLY - 127 orgs, 203 individuals endorse 2009 Gay Men's Health Agenda

Spring has sprung, and with its promise of hope, growth and renewal, delivered a final tally of 127 organizational and 203 individual endorsements to the 2009 Gay Men's Health Agenda.

Read the full document
right here, on LifeLube. It can be downloaded here . A full list of endorsements is below.

The 2009Gay Men's Health Agenda was created when Project CRYSP – a Chicago Department of Public Health gay men's health collaboration among four agencies – began soliciting input from a variety of stakeholders across the country in April 2008. Stakeholders were asked to share their vision of a 2009 Gay Men's Health Agenda – to list the objectives and strategies needed to advance our health and well-being. Participants, representing a wide spectrum of organizations and demographically diverse individuals, submitted the policy initiatives, advocacy objectives and the activities they felt were essential to a comprehensive gay men's health agenda for 2009. Submitted in the form of blog posts, the ideas were published on the LifeLube blog – a gay men's health and wellness portal – with comments and discussion strongly encouraged.

An analysis was conducted of the ideas presented through this process and an overview of the process and collected input was presented to 200 gay, bisexual and transgender men's health leaders and advocates at the closing session of the 2008 National Gay Men's Health Summit in Seattle, October, 2008. Feedback and additional ideas were recorded during the extensive open discussion portion of the session. Finally, additional feedback was solicited on the Gay Men's Health Ning-- . This process informs the entire document.

As a new Administration and Congress set a course for America, with a focus on health care reform, leaders of the gay men's health movement join with the National Coalition for LGBT Health and other allies in advocating for policies and resources to advance the health and well being of gay, bisexual, and transgender men.
